Women composers have their day.

"3 wonderfully inventive pieces from 2 female composers of 20th century music who are just getting their due.
Nothing earth shattering here, but beautiful piano & string music straddling romantic and modern references.
the real find here is Rebecca Clarke's Piano trio (with subtle hints of Bartok though thoroughly her own) and her Viola/piano sonata.
Clarke was a Viola player herself and she writes beautifully for the instrument. Heart rending stuff.
Martin Roscoe (piano) and The Endellion Quartet are so inside this music, it is hard to imagine it will ever sound better.
This is the best pianism from Roscoe to date.
ASV sound engineering is superb. Warm and transparent with rich round bottom.
A great CD with which I believe is the ONLY recording available of the TERRIFIC Piano Trio.
This one's a KEEPER.
