Benaud Trio

Courier Mail (Australia)

Australian classical music is well served by this all-Australian disc of music performed by an award-winning piano trio. Sharing a passion for the game of Australia’s great cricketer, Melbourne’s Benaud Trio players Amir Farid (piano), Lachlan Bramble (violin), Ewen Bramble (cello) believe a performance of ‘the most exalted and refined of music can sit quite comfortably with a passion for the other riches of our culture.’ As a cricketer hones his skills, so too does the Benaud Trio in these piano trios by Ross Edwards, Paul Stanhope, Matthew Hindson and Nicholas Buc . The musicians form a sharp, close partnership in playing that sizzles with youthful vigour. They uncover the emotional range of each piece, each with its own piquancy, its own frisson and excitement.
