Truly splendid...all three members of the trio & their recording producer collaborating to present us with a superbly effective aural rendering of these early indications of Rachmaninoff's slowly blossoming compositional mastery.

The Rachmaninoff recording was chosen by the Classique HD (France) as Album of the Week!

Classique HD (June 2019)

This is the ensemble’s first recording, although its members have featured elsewhere as soloists – but the group’s impassioned, deeply involving beauty of phrasing and cooperation is worthy of trios that have been around far longer. The two [piano] trios receive absolutely splendid readings, filled with warmth and passion … as an exploration of the emotional depth that Rachmaninoff could extract…it is…an impressive achievement.
