The Gould Piano Trio, directly compared to the great Beaux Arts Trio by The Washington Post, have remained at the forefront of the international chamber music scene for a quarter of a century. Launched by their first prize at the Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition, they were ‘Rising Stars’, making a highly successful debut at New York’s Weill Recital Hall, which was acclaimed by The Strad magazine.

Their many appearances at London’s Wigmore Hall have included the complete piano trios of Dvořák, Mendelssohn and Schubert in the 2017–18 season, and a Beethoven cycle, to celebrate 25 years since their first appearance at this iconic venue.

Commissioning and performing new works is an important part of the trio’s philosophy of staying creative and freshly inspired. Sir James MacMillan’s Piano Trio No. 2 was written for them in 2014 and premiered at the Bath International Music Festival that season. 2017 featured the Goulds in the Hull: City of Culture, performing After Avedon, a work by former BBC Young Musician Mark Simpson, as part of the PRS for Music Foundation’s New Music Biennial.

Their extensive tours of North America, the Far East, New Zealand, and Europe are interspersed with masterclasses to nurture the next generation, for instance at the Britten-Pears Young Artist Programme at Snape Maltings.

In addition to their highly praised recordings of the standard works, the trio have thrown light on neglected gems from the late Romantic British repertoire for Naxos, including the piano trios of Charles Villiers Stanford and John Ireland.
