Left Hand Legacy Vol. 1 showcases the diverse vocabulary of Wittgenstein’s circle of composer friends Franz Schmidt, Josef Labor, Hans Gál and Ernest Walker. Volume 2 plumbs the emotional depths, with Franz Schmidt‘s brooding Quintet in B flat major and the sublime combination of clarinet, viola and piano left hand in Josef Labor’s Trio. It contains the very last recordings of pianist Folke Nauta, just before he died last summer.

VOYAGE has been rated 10 out of 10 in music magazine Luister; 'Prisma trio convinces with a full sound and swinging rhythms (…) Their own adaptation of Ravel's Ronsard à son âme is particularly successful, with Kliphuis' Space Opera the trio goes 'where no man has gone before' (…) Lots of praise for it's enterprising initiative to self-publish this CD. '

Voyage can be listened to as a Prisma concert program. The starting point is the magnificent trio of Jean Cras. This French naval commander unjustly remained unknown as a composer. He wrote the trio in 1926 aboard his naval frigate Lamotte-piquet. A work full of adventure, the scent of the sea and distant lands, and nostalgia for the music of Brittany.
