Second release on ONYX from “Britain’s premier chamber ensemble” (The Times).
 
Generous 72 minute coupling including both Piano Trios plus a substantial and unique filler in the Variations concertantes, superbly played by Paul Watkins and Ian Brown
 
The Piano Trios are two of Mendelssohn’s finest, most warm-hearted and romantic chamber works
 
The Nash Ensemble, having recently celebrated their 40th Anniversary, are having something of a golden period, with recent releases of Dvorak Chamber Music (ASV) and their previous ONYX disc of Turnage world premieres receiving rave reviews (ONYX4005) and nominated for several awards
