Editorial Reviews

Democrat and Chronicle.com - Anna Reguero
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 full of zest.
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.
