The Neave Trio’s third album for Chandos Records, Her Voice, celebrates the trailblazing work of three distinguished female composers. One of her most prominent pieces, Rebecca Clarke’s Piano Trio showcases her unique harmonic language, influenced by both the French and British styles of the early 20th century, as well as by folk music. Amy Beach’s trio was composed late in her career, and incorporates lush romantic melodies over impressionistic tones and colors. A prominent concert pianist and teacher, Louise Farrenc also achieved success as a composer. Her trio conveys inspiration from both the Classical and Romantic eras, but is widely regarded as a notable representation of early Romantic chamber music.
