Recently compared to the Beaux Arts Trio by the Washington Post for their “musical fire” and dedication to the genre, the Gould Piano Trio continue to bring the masterpieces of their repertoire to an ever-widening public. After winning Melbourne’s inaugural International Chamber Music Competition, the Goulds quickly established a worldwide reputation with many tours throughout Europe, the United States, South America, the Far East and New Zealand. After their highly regarded rendition of James MacMillan’s Fourteen Little Pictures, they commissioned a second piano trio from the composer, given its première at the Bath International Music Festival in May 2014 and subsequently toured in Britain. The Goulds have performed complete cycles of the Dvořák trios at Wigmore Hall and the Beethoven trios at St George’s Bristol; this “live” Beethoven appears on the SOMM label. The trio’s discography is very far-reaching. Their Brahms cycle is unique in including both his early trios and those for clarinet and horn, and their exploration of the works of the late British romantics such as Stanford, Ireland, Bax, Scott, Milford and York Bowen (Chandos and Naxos) has brought critical acclaim. The trio have always found the space in their musical lives to coach, principally at the Royal Northern College of Music and the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama where they hold residencies. Their outreach work with schoolchildren and in the community brings a sense of added communication and perspective to their outlook. Of particular pride is the creation of the Corbridge and the RWCMD festivals by the Gould Piano Trio with clarinettist Robert Plane, where the collaboration with guest artists refreshes their musical inspiration.
