Prima Facie are please to announce the release of English Phantasies for clarinet trio performed by the Tritium Trio. This album continues the series of contemporary music being interpreted and performed by younger musicians.

Formed in January 2013 at the Royal Academy of Music, the Tritium Trio is a truly multinational ensemble, comprising Slovenian clarinettist Jernej Albreht, Swedish cellist Lydia Hillerudh, and Australian pianist Joseph Havlat. The foremost desire of the group is to explore repertoire other than pieces typically played by this ensemble type, in order to make rehearsals and performances as refreshing and enlightening as possible for both the trio and the audience they may have.

With works by John Ireland, Kenneth Leighton and John McCabe the disc also celebrates the 70th birthday of one of the the founders of Prima Facie, Giles Easterbrook with a stunning recording of his own trio; the disc also marks the 80th anniversay of the birth of John McCabe and the 90th of Kenneth Leighton.

Recorded with the beautiful Fazioli piano at Turner Sims, Southampton this is a feast of 20th-century composition at its very best played by one of the most stunning trios in the world.
