New CD – Matthews and Fauré (2017)

“Matthews composed the piece for Sara Trickey, and there’s no reason why this performance shoudn’t be considered definitive. Trickey and Daniel Tong really have the measure of Matthew’s musical language, finding an improvisatory quality in the Aria of 1986 and bringing an understated wit to the Romanza (2012) – written to prove that contemporary music can still say something meaningful in waltz time. These are natural, unforced performances, recorded in a clear acoustic that nicely captures the gleam of Trickey’s sound. In a crowded field, their account of Fauré’s A major Sonata holds up well enough too; there’s a to-ing and fro-ing between the pair and an engaging intimacy in the way Trickey’s lines are buoyed up by Tong’s marginally more assertive playing. But you’ll buy this for the David Matthews, and you’ll be glad you did” – The Gramophone
