The young Neave Trio explores some of the most prominent French composers of the early 20th century in their new album. The dominant piece here is the lesser-known trio by Albert Roussel: only the second of his completed works to be published. This is followed by Debussy’s early piano trio, performed with a bright and radiant approach that provides great moments of lightness and clarity. It ends with the ever-popular trio by Fauré, composed at the end of his life when beset by deafness. Neave’s interpretations perfectly capture the complexity and tension of the piece which in late Fauré comes abundantly from texture and movement.
