The master of simple, unpretentious melancholy, Akira Kosemura, rearranged some of his older work for piano, cello and violin. The compelling result was performed live, resulting in a captivating record that skips around between calm introspection, subtle modernist classical transitions and simply joyful eruptions.

8/10 Staff review, 10 April 2015

There are two things in by Akira Kosemura this week. I chose ‘Trio’ as a) I used to like the biscuit of the same name and b) it does what it says on the tin which makes my job a hell of a lot easier. Indeed,  this is a record of the much loved Japanese pianist re-arranging some of his older work for a trio of piano, cello and violin. Opener ‘Precious’ is absolutely astounding. It bursts into like like one of those cherry trees they have over in Japan, the cello and violin dance joyfully around big thick rolling piano. It’s magnificent, the playing is simply out of this world. This is going to be hard to top, the opening chords of ‘Larmes’ are the piano on its lonesome but once the strings come in the track takes flight as the instruments intertwine.

There are only four tracks here but they are beautifully arranged and played. You can almost smell the scent of an exquisite drawing room whilst you are listening to it. You'll like it if you like Rachels, Max Richter, Ryuichi Sakamoto, string quartets,  book-laden, slightly musty drawing rooms.
