Garden of Joys and Sorrows: Trios for Flute, Viola, and Harp

$ 14.99

This outstanding recording features the recently publish Carl Fischer edition of Debussy's immortal Sonata.  The edition, for the first time, honors all of Debussy's original indications, many of which were omitted during the work's previous editions.  Hat Trick also performs the rarely heard Dubois Terzettino, a composition which preceded Debussy's by a decade, and which is the earliest known piece for flute, viola and harp.  In addition, Hat Trick plays works by Toru Takemitsu, Sofia Gubaidulina, and gives the world premiere recording of Miguel del Aguila's "Submerged", composed for Hat Trick.



“Hat Trick pulled off something of a hat trick with this release. It has introduced an absolutely mesmerizing new work to the repertoire. It has premiered a significant new edition of a beloved masterpiece, and it has laid to rest a myth regarding the flute, viola, and harp trio’s origins. And happily, it has done this in a splendidly played and recorded program, so we can thoroughly enjoy the ensemble’s triple-triumph. Warmly recommended.” - Fanfare

“The best musical ensembles don’t only produce interesting interpretations and compelling performances of individual works, new or old; they also serve the music they love by putting together well-designed programmes in which a series of works illuminate one another and produce a whole which has a greater impact than the sum of its individual parts. This CD is a happy example of all of this.” - MusicWeb International

“Hat Trick takes their respective instruments on quite a ride on this generously programmed CD. Anyone curious to explore the rare flute, viola, and harp literature would be wise to check out this album.” - I CARE IF YOU LISTEN

“...their approach of sound and color feels like they’re sitting back in their chairs and allowing the sounds to simply emanate from their bodies...” - harpcolumn (9/10 superb)
