Trio Goya, named after the artist whose lifespan encompasses the works it performs, play Classical chamber music on period instruments. Their programme includes a mature work by Mozart, and provides an opportunity to compare trios by Haydn and Beethoven separated by just two years, when each composer was open to the influence of the other.
A copy of a fortepiano by Anton Walter, Vienna 1795 is the centrepiece of their performances, which achieve a tonal balance particular to the use gut strings on violin and cello, and the lighter, precise sonority of the fortepiano.
Their recording of four late Haydn piano trios, released on Chandos Records in 2010 was reviewed in Gramophone magazine: "Trio Goya achieve a perfect instrumental balance in sensitive performances."
