Founded in Switzerland in 2011, the Philon Trio is a chamber ensemble, consisting of clarinetist David Dias da Silva, violist Adam Newman, and pianist Camilla Köhnke. Their latest recording features the music of Max Bruch, who was 72 when he composed Eight Pieces, Op. 83, for his son, Max Felix, a professional clarinetist. This work, composed in a late but conservative Romantic style, far removed from the language of Bruch’s contemporaries, distinguishes itself by its intensity, passion, and intimate character.
