I have just received this disc and am so pleased that I bought it - have listened to it three times already and am in love with it. After hearing a portion on radio 3 and finding that the version broadcast was rare and very expensive, I tried the Naxos issue and cannot fault it. Beautiful playing (LOM Trio, plus Gallego/Garcia for the quintet) with perfect intonation - sunny and uplifting music - vivid recording: a super disc. Only the last piece has an overtly Spanish style (really lovely it is too, an arrangement of the intermezzo from Goyescas) but the trio and quintet are still imbued with Mediterranean light, full of captivating texture and melody. I will now have a look for more recordings with the LOM Piano Trio.
