MPR105 Arnold Cooke: Piano Trio, Quartet and Quintet.

12.99

MPR is proud to announce the latest release in its pioneering series of chamber music by Arnold Cooke with the superb Pleyel Ensemble. Totalling a very generous 79 minutes and ten seconds, we have the world première recordings of Cooke’s Piano Trio (1941-44), his Piano Quartet (1948/49 and his mighty Piano Quintet (1969). Although Cooke studied for a while in Germany with Hindemith, his music has a very English feel, but it is very interesting in these three pieces to notice a gloriously romantic ‘Brahmsian’ influence. These are deeply satisfying compositions both to play and to hear and any lover of chamber music will undoubtedly enjoy the Pleyel Ensemble’s excellent and committed performances of these wonderful chamber works.
