Most Wonderful Time

"Most Wonderful Time is not your usual recording of holiday music. First of all, the arrangement of each piece is a thoughtfully planned trio in an appropriate style. Secondly, the virtuosi of the Eaken Trio play each selection with flawless precision and a great deal of panache. Thus, the disc is programmed so that the beginning of each piece heralds the approach of something new and pleasing to the ear. The result is a fascinating journey through seasonal offerings, most of which are familiar but are heard here in new and different settings."
