Gould Trio with Robert Plane, Clarinet$50.00The partnership between Robert Plane and the Gould Trio stretches back 25 years and is the closest relationship with a chamber ensemble Robert has enjoyed in his career. The fact that he is married to Lucy Gould, violinist of the Gould Trio, clearly intensifies this, but the whole ensemble has a feeling of family and of a wealth of shared experience. Richard Lester, cellist of the trio, also happens to be Lucy Gould’s brother-in-law, completing the family bond.

The Gould Piano Trio, directly compared to the great Beaux Arts Trio for their “musical fire” and “dedication to the genre” in the Washington Post, have remained at the forefront of the international chamber music scene for a quarter of a century. Launched by their first prize at the Melbourne Chamber Music Competition and subsequently selected as YCAT Artists, they were “Rising Stars,” making a highly successful debut at New York’s Weill Recital Hall, described by Strad Magazine as “Pure Gould.” Their many appearances at London’s Wigmore Hall have included the complete piano trios of Dvorak, Mendelssohn and Schubert–plus in the 2017-18 season, a Beethoven cycle, to celebrate 25 years since their first appearance at this iconic venue.

Commissioning and performing new works is an important part of the trio’s philosophy of staying creative and freshly inspired. Most recently they have premiered “Four Fables,” written for them by Huw Watkins, one of today’s most popular British composers, who has been featured at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center this past season. The Goulds have made extensive tours of North America, the Far East and New Zealand, and have performed throughout Europe. Their own Festival in Corbridge, Northumberland, attracts fans from as far away as Australia, who come each summer for a chamber music feast with many famous guests.

The trio’s diverse discography includes the main masterpieces of the repertoire, but also many neglected gems, often rediscovered through artistic collaboration. Cycles of Brahms and Dvorak (Champs Hill), Hummel (Naxos) and Beethoven (Somm)–recorded “live” at St. George’s, Bristol–are complimented by single composer discs of the late romantic British repertoire with clarinetist, Robert Plane.

Robert Plane, Clarinet

Robert Plane’s hugely varied career has seen concerto appearances in Europe, Asia and the USA, with performances of the Mozart Clarinet Concerto in Madrid with the City of London Sinfonia, Beijing with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and in the USA with the Virginia Symphony. In 1992 he won the overall Gold Medal at the Royal Over-Seas League Music Competition, and he made his BBC Proms debut at the Royal Albert Hall in 2011. Other highlights of past seasons include Piers Hellawell’s Agricolas with the Ulster Orchestra and RTE Symphony Orchestra, Finzi with the Zurich Chamber Orchestra and Stanford with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra.

He is a successful recording artist and is particularly highly regarded for his solo recordings for Naxos. His account of Finzi’s Clarinet Concerto won Classic CD Magazine’s “Best Concerto Recording” Award and was selected as BBC Radio 3’s recommended version in “Building a Library,” and his recording of Bax Sonatas was shortlisted for a Gramophone Award. His recording of Messiaen’s “Quartet for the End of Time” with the Gould Trio was praised by BBC Music Magazine as the “best modern account” of this monumental work. His latest disc “Contrasts” was described by the Guardian as “a little gem”.
