BBC Music Magazine. Malcome Hayes:

Will the real Charles Villiers Stanford please stand up? Sure enough, here they both do. The Stanford who personified the Royal College of Music’s reverence for Brahms is represented by his earlyish First Piano Trio and late Second Piano Quartet. Meanwhile, Stanford the Irish maverick steps forward in style with his violin-and-piano Legend and Irish Fantasies…they’re a delight, with a wry inventiveness (imagine Grieg after several pints of Guinness) whose character is savoured by Lucy Gould’s classy violin-playing.

Gramophone Magazine
Two superior Stanford works – and another feather in this ensemble’s cap.
I’m delighted to be able to report that the Gould Piano Trio are magnificently stylish and sympathetic champions, and in the Piano Quartet they are joined by the excellent David Adams on the viola. Benefitting from top-notch production values throughout, this generously filled disc should be snapped up without delay. Andrew Achenbach.

The Telegraph
…his First Piano Trio of 1889…is certainly no wilting English violet of a piece, this excellent performance from the Gould Piano Trio highlighting its sinew, and its dramatic contours. In the Piano Quartet No 2 of 1913 there is a toughness and resolution to the workings that the Gould elucidate with understanding and panache.

BBC Radio 3 CD Review.
A seriously good rediscovery in this world premiere recording. Unmissable at Naxos’s budget price!
…the First Piano Trio combines as much intensity and lyricism as any of Elgar’s chamber music and the Gould Trio do it full justice. Aided by David Adams, they also give a first-class performance of the Second Piano Quartet, an unjustly neglected work which was never published in the composer’s lifetime and has only recently been resurrected by the Gould Trio with the editorial assistance of Professor Jeremy Dibble, who also contributes the authoritative notes.
