Add To Cart

Formed in 2007, the Cavell Trio is a collaboration born out of friendship and a desire to share the love of music-making with others. All three members are active as performers, teachers, and chamber music coaches, and their individual commitment to education and outreach is evidenced in their myriad collective activities – performing, coaching, outreach performances, festival appearances, international travel, and commissioning.

The Art of Collective Invention marks the first release for this dynamic trio. Featured here are six Twentieth Century works for wind trio, two of them in their debut recordings. The title of the album is borrowed from filmmaker Jonathan Demme (Philadelphia, Silence of the Lambs, Rachel Getting Married), who uses the phrase to describe the efforts of a diverse set of people with special skills in creating his films. Much as with filmmaking, chamber music demands this sort of selfless giving to create an expressive and engaging artistic whole. From the very first sounds of this recording, the listener will be struck by the beauty that such a collaboration can yield
