“It is remarkable if you can give the impression of an orchestra as a trio, but even more outstanding if you make the audience desire this medium more than the orchestra. This performance is of that league. In Beethoven’s Second Pianotrio, from his opus 1, the threesome manage to build the tension in equal fashion, again reaching a thrilling end. Bring on volume three!”

De Volkskrant, 2018

“This is a CD that evokes more admiration every time one listens to it.”

Trouw, 2018

“It is all so smooth and technically brilliant that one can only come to the conclusion that a top ensemble is at work here that performs internationally with the best in the field.”
