The re-formed Grinke Trio

New Grinke TrioIn June 1939, not long after the first performance of Ireland’s Third Piano Trio, theIreland recording reviewed Grinke Trio in its new lineup with Kendall Taylor as pianist went on tour to Holland, taking this new piece with them, on their return performing it at the Old Assembly Rooms in Newcastle-upon-Tyne and in the Wigmore Hall. Forsyth, a close friend of Ireland, wrote a jolly review of the piece, with its ‘effective abruptness’ to close the Scherzo and lovely cello writing in the slow movement. The group had already recorded the Phantasie-Trio in November 1938, with Hooton playing ‘The Holy Boy’. This recording was very well received, as one of the reviews (left) might suggest. And in 1939 they went on to record the Third Piano Trio too, also for Decca.
