Picture of Yvonne Howard and the English Piano Trio perform this 14 minute work comprising five songs to text from Robert Browning's Pippa Passes.  Jane Faulkner and Timothy Ravenscroft then play the Sonata in A minor "Affinities".

"Pippa Passes - five songs of Asolo" is a setting for mezzo and piano trio of some of Robert Browning's most famous lines, from his dramatic poem of the same name. Mezzo Yvonne Howard is on top form, with a splendid characterisation of Pippa, passing innocently through the decidedly murky world of Asolo.

The trio's violinst and pianist then give a fine performance of "Affinities", a sometimes dark and complex work that finishes with two sparkling movements, including a very difficult five/eight scherzo that the players toss off with great nonchalance.
