'You know a performance is working well when you greet each long repeat with an inward sigh of pleasure. I have to say this was particularly the case with the Piano Trio No. 6 in E flat, Op. 70 No. 2. Is the sole reason this wonderful work is neglected simply that it hasn't got a nickname?' Stephen Johnson
