Howard Blake's Trio was a revelation. With over 600 published works, the composer of the festive children's classic The Snowman surely ranks among the most prolific and original voices of our time. From the tranquil opening bars of the first movement to the voluptuous soaring lines of the slow movement, and the arresting finale, this was a striking composition. The Milan Trio responded with a radiant performance, exuding naivete and an almost child-like beauty and simplicity. Without doubt Blake is a composer whose comparative neglect should be a cause of embarassment for the musical establishment.
