The Eye of Night is The Myriad Trio's debut album. Released in March of 2012, it contains the classic work for flute, viola, and harp - Debussy's Trio Sonate - as well as other lesser known works for the ensemble including Arnold Bax's Elegiac Trio and Arthur Foote's At Dusk.
The Myriad Trio takes pride in creating new works for the flute, viola, and harp repertoire and has arranged J.S. Bach's Trio Sonata in G Major, BWV 1038 for the combination as well.
The last piece on the CD is the source of inspiration for the disc and the work that anchors the album: The Eye of Night. Commissioned and premiered by The Myriad Trio in 2010, The Eye of Night, written by the British-American composer David Bruce, highlights the very special qualities that make this instrumental combination distinctive and this unique ensemble extraordinary. This is a work that will leave you wishing for more, and an album you will not forget.
