Gould Piano Trio
The Gould Piano Trio, directly compared to the great Beaux Arts Trio for their “musical fire” and “dedication to the genre” in the Washington Post, have remained at the forefront of the international chamber music scene for a quarter of a century.

Edward Rushton Game/No Game *
Schubert Piano Trio No. 2 in E Flat
- This performance of Game/No Game by Edward Rushton has been supported by the Schubert Ensemble Trust Commission Grant Scheme
Their many appearances at London’s Wigmore Hall have included the complete piano trios of Dvorak, Mendelssohn and Schubert – plus in the 2017-18 season, a Beethoven cycle, to celebrate 25 years since their first appearance at this iconic venue.
Commissioning and performing new works is an important part of the trio’s philosophy of staying creative and freshly inspired. Sir James MacMillan’s 2nd Piano Trio was written for them in 2014 and premiered at the Bath International Festival that season. 2017 featured the Goulds in the Hull ‘City of Culture’ celebration, performing former BBC Young Musician, Mark Simpson’s ‘After Avedon’ as part of the PRS ‘New Music Biennial’.
