The Moricosta Trio (Lucy Baker violin, Steven Burnard viola, Jessica Burroughs cello) was formed when they were working with the BBC Philharmonic. Now they’re in demand around the country, and here they are joined by Martin Roscoe; firstly with their violinist and cellist for the Haydn Piano Trio, and then with the full trio for the two Piano Quartets. Fauré’s is dark and impassioned, whilst the Brahms quartet is more fiery and full of Hungarian gypsy influences, particularly in the Finale.
