The Aubert Trio.

Beethoven Clarinet Trio Op. 38,  Faure Clarinet Trio Op 120. 

The Aubert trio have made a name for themselves, both in this country and abroad, notably in France, where they formed. This unusual combination provides a wonderful palate of colours to beguile the ear. Beethoven reworked the trio out of material from his opus 20 septet. Fauré composed his trio the year before his death but you’d never know it. It is full of youthful vigour and beautiful melody.
