‘The only comparison that comes to mind is the old Beaux Arts Trio; the combination of jewel-like precision and a musical fire that ignites from the first bar’. High praise from the Washington Post for the ensemble whose success in a wide range of music – both live and on disc – has been prodigious. Of their Mendelssohn CD including tonight’s work, The Guardian wrote, ‘The young players give performances as fine as any on disc … offering passage work of sparkling evenness and clarity’.
