“The overwhelming quality of this new disc is a quite irresistible freshness: young man’s music, played with an inquisitive spirit, a spring-like clarity and (when necessary) a daredevil verve.”

Gramophone, 2018

“El trío Van Baerle es excepcionalmente brillante. Esta integral debería ser su doctorado, y por lo que llevamos oído bien podría ser cum laude”

Scherzo, 2018

“In den drei Trios versteht es das ‘Van Baerle Trio’, die Musik sehr rhetorisch werden und mit einer souveränen gestalterischen Geschmeidigkeit neben aller Leichtigkeit auch die Emotion nicht zu kurz kommen zu lassen. Das Adagio des Trios op. 11 ist in dieser Hinsicht absolut phänomenal in seiner Wirkung. Diese fünf Minuten fallen unter das Rauschmittelgesetz.”

Pizzicato, 2017

“There are some recordings that, from the outset, seem to settle you into a nice feeling that all will be well with the world, at least for the duration of the programme, and this is one such. If you want your mood lifted by sparkling performances of some of Beethoven’s sunniest music then this is the place to be. I for one plan to be first in line for volume 2.”

MusicWeb International, 2018

“An excitingly crafted, well balanced reading. In short: They got it just right! A most promising debut of a projected complete cycle. And what’s more: Thus far not available in hi-resolution.”
