Editorial Reviews

Audiophile Audition - Gary Lemco
Two generations ago, the trio of Artur Rubinstein, Gregor Piatagorsky, and Jascha Heifetz became dubbed “The Million Dollar Trio,” and it seems that epithet now belongs to the three distinguished instrumentalists who realize Mendelssohn’s inspired chamber works on this delicious disc.... A fine debut album--frankly, a tough act to follow.

Three of today’s most widely known and celebrated classical musicians on one disc is almost too good to be true. The recording lives up to the hype. These trios are impeccably performed and ...

ConcertoNet.com - Marcus Karl Maroney
The expected technical finesse and purity of tone that each of these musicians brings to their solo repertoire are on fine display in this group effort, and the players have a delicious panache that makes the recording a delight from first note to last.... This recording stands high among a small but rich discography of these works.

    Amazing Synergy among three Superlative Musicians!

    Emanuel Ax, Yo-Yo Ma and Itzhak Perlman collaborate to make heavenly sounds in their performance of the Mendelssohn Piano Trios. You can hear the joy and excitement as they bring these piano trios to life. I felt like I was there in the studio with them. I could feel them playing off each other. Each of them shines and this results in a breathtakingly beautiful experience. The performance was that personal, nuanced, and sparkling. I was not acquainted with this music before buying this CD, but I grew to love it very quickly. Every time I hear it, and I listen to it nearly every day, I hear more depth, more emotion that makes this music and this performance so special. When I saw this CD with these three artists, I had to have it. If you love classical music, you won't be disappointed by adding this to your collection.

    OUTSTANDING!

    Listening to these three musical giants collaborate on these pieces was pure unadulterated pleasure. Bought one for myself and one for a gift, and received great thanks for the gift.

    I Also Recommend:

    Listening to this CD motivated me to look for more music by Mendelssohn and more performances by Yo-Yo Ma and his friends.

    The flawless performances of Mendelssohn's music demonstrated the mastery these three gentleman have of their talented gifts as musicians. Mendelssohn's compositions are somewhat difficult but that was not an issue for these Icons of music. I had to go look up Mendelssohn in my Encyclopedia after reading the short essay that came with the CD. What a truly intriguing story. It is plain to see that Mr. Mendelssohn's music came from his heart.

    What A Listening Experience of The Piano Trios

    This trio pulls out all the stops! How can you beat Pearlman, Yo-Yo Ma
    and Ax?
    A beautiful combination, wondeful listening music. Would Mendelssohn have
    approved.....absolutely!
    Mendelssohn inspired deeply touching music in his work, which reflects
    what he must have been as a man. These three, have shown their passion
    for Mendelssohn's passion, and have incorporated their talents in
    the showcasing of this CD.
    I give it very high marks in creativity and performance, and how it touches your senses. Listen to it in your relaxing moments, the sound
    quality is impecable.
