“Each work is worthy of attention. But what makes this album desirable are the performances of these three friends.” - Charlottesville Classical
“These are beautifully poised performances. There is a lovely and idiomatic blend of sonority in the Aquarelles and Sonate en concert, the latter spotlighting the trio’s fine mutual understanding. A very nicely balanced programme.” - Gramophone
“For such a mixed bag of tricks, this new CD offers many gems.” - Performing Arts Monterey Bay
"It’s a disc well worth having both for the varied, textures, tones and forms and the fine, sympathetic readings provided by the artists." - JWR
