A Triple Portrait
Elena Firsova is an émigré composer born in Russia and resident in the UK since 1991. She was one of Khrennikov's seven blacklisted composers in 1979. The CD was released in celebration of Firsova's 65th birthday and fills a gap in her discography, being the first disc dedicated entirely to her chamber music. The Marsyas Trio is joined on several tracks by violinist Patrick Dawkins (Ligeti Quartet), violist Morgan Goff, mezzo-soprano Hannah Pedley and German soprano Maacha Deubner.
