Since the death more than 50 years ago of Sir Thomas Beecham, who championed him (the Symphony in G minor was a Beecham favourite), the music of Edouard Lalo (1823-92) has rather languished here. But now comes a remarkable disc of his piano trios by the Leonore, who make a good case for them. If the rather Schumannesque first (c1850) is slightly anonymous, the other two, especially the B minor, are strong, original pieces—a real discovery.
