LAWRENCE ROSE CELLO SONATA Op. 20

SHOSTAKOVICH CELLO SONATA Op. 40

'Katherine Jenkinson, the wonderful cellist on this recording, proposed pairing Rose’s cello sonata with that of Shostakovich due to the stylistic and formal similarities of the two works. The result is an incredible disc of a renowned twentieth-century masterpiece alongside an astonishing premiere recording'  Presto Music 

HAYDN PIANO TRIOS VOLUME  5 

THE AQUINAS PIANO TRIO

'The Aquinas Trio brings flawless ensemble and a lively intelligence to these relatively neglected pre-1770 works...cellist Katherine Jenkinson’s restrained and elegant punctuations bring a sense of order' The Strad

 

'As for the performances by the Aquinas Piano Trio, I love them. These players...know how to make this music sparkle with wit and touching emotion.…I can give the Aquinas my highest recommendation' Fanfare 

'I have never enjoyed Haydn trios as much as in these performances. Aquinas Piano Trio’s easy-going spirit is captivating, and Naxos has given it bright, clean sound. What more needs to be said?' Fanfare

'This is music to enjoy, as the Aquinas Piano Trio clearly do in playing it. Although by no means without its moments of emphatic drama, the trio’s demeanour is predominantly one of delicacy and restraint, gently projecting its ideas through lucid textures....' Gramophone
