Disc No: CDBP 9792 The Rubbra-Gruenberg-Pleeth Trio, heard on this release, had its origins during the Second World War, when Edmund Rubbra and William Pleeth (cello) were in the Army Classical Music Group. After WWII, and several violinists later, the young Erich Gruenberg joined, and in this grouping the Trio became well known, only disbanding as a regular ensemble at the end of the 1950s. Here they perform Rubbra’s Piano Trio in One Movement op.68 (1949-50) and Mozart’s Piano Trio no.1 in G major - both originally issued on a rare early 1950s Argo LP – as well as the Adagio cantabile from Haydn’s Piano Trio in F sharp minor. The legendary Griller Quartet provide a typically exquisite reading of Rubbra’s String Quartet no.2 in E flat major (1950-51), making this an essential release for lovers of British and European chamber music.
