This is the first full-length CD release of music by Canadian composer T. Patrick Carrabré, and features his first two piano trios, as well as his piano quintet. Carrabré worked closely with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra for over a decade. In 2007 he completed six years as the orchestra’s Composer-in-Residence.

« The Gryphon Trio attacks the works of T. Patrick Carrabré with the same energy and zest they put into all their recordings…Overall, this disc would make a fine addition to any contemporary Canadian music enthusiast’s library and perhaps that of an adventurous open-minded listener. »
– Marcin Swoboda, La Scena Musicale
