5.0 out of 5 stars MusicWeb International Review February 21, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Review by Paul Shoemaker online at MusicWeb International
[...]

In this year's (2008) concert series the Langroise Trio gave us mostly works of the Classical period -- Brahms and Hummel Piano Quartets, the complete Beethoven String Trios, even a Herzogenberg Trio. for their fourth CD1 (see review of an earlier release) they are back, by popular request, with their more frequently heard modern music repertoire (see a concert review including the Bartholomew and Earnest works on this release). More than half the music presented on this disk was written in the 21st Century, and most of that is recorded here for the first time.

David Johnson's transcriptions for the Trio of works for two violins and viola have always met with considerable success; the works seem to blossom out with the additional lower sonorities. Such works were often originally written for students so they will have something to play along with their classmates, so the music in its original form is admittedly compromised and there is no primal sonic integrity in the original version to be preserved. This particular work was played in the second concert by the Langroise Trio that I ever attended, and it doesn't particularly "sound like" Martin' apart from exhibiting that author's typical lyricism and fresh originality. The played it for us again last evening and I was struck by the rarefied and cleverly parodied folk music flavour of the last movement. Like all the music on this disk the structure is basically tonal and, again like most of the music on this disk, there are at times a quirkiness, rhythmic innovation, and freshness that actively engage the listener.

Greg Bartholomew (born 1957) studied at the College of William and Mary and at University of Washington.

Always so nice to discover new music you really like.
I heard the Cockey Trios preformed in Boise. The Ilyiad set of trios were dedicated to Bernie, Jim's wife. The Odydessy group to Barbera Morgan after her return from the space shuttle flight as the Teacher in Space.
A memorable experience of good music with lovely melodies and interesting people.
