The King's Alchemist - Debut Album

Our debut album “The King’s Alchemist” was released by Willowhayne Records in 2021 to critical acclaim. Named Chamber Music Disc of the Month by BBC Music Magazine and awarded 5 starts for both performance and recording, the album features string trios by Finzi, Hugh Wood, Sally Beamish and E.J. Moeran.


“…the Eblana play with incisiveness combined with a patient concentration which allows each work to unfold its narrative naturally and engagingly.”
BBC Music Magazine
“…the Eblana String Trio prove enviably lucid, articulate advocates of this (Finzi) and Hugh Wood’s stimulating Ithaka…last but definitely not least, we are offered Moeran’s marvellous String Trio from 1931 in a splendidly stylish and affectionate performance…”
“The Eblana String Trio give the Wood and Beamish works their first recording and it is doubtful that they will receive a better one for many years. In Finzi and Moeran too they find a satisfying balance between contemplation and restlessness. The opening of the Finzi is almost heart-breaking. This is a clever selection, immaculately delivered.”
