Ireland ~ Piano Trio No 2
Borodin ~ Piano Trio in D
Debussy ~ La Mer (arr. Beamish)


The ‘Apaches’ was the name adopted by a group of ‘artistic outcasts’, including Ravel and Stravinsky, in the early 1900s. No outcasts these – Trio Apaches comprises Matthew Trusler (violin), Thomas Carroll (cello) and Ashley Wass (piano), all highly regarded solo artists in their own right. Their programme opens with a charming Mozart trio, and moves on to John Ireland’s sombre ‘war’ Piano Trio, completed in 1917 and said to represent ‘the boys going over the top’. Borodin’s Piano Trio – from whom Debussy took great inspiration – follows and the programme ends with Debussy’s glorious La Mer in an arrangement by Scottish based composer Sally Beamish.

“Matthew Trusler has been attracting the kind of praise normally reserved for a young Oistrakh.”–The Independent
