Notes & Reviews:

Mendelssohn in his maturity wrote two well-known piano trios which stand as peaks among his chamber music compositions. On the original release of these recordings, 'Compact Disc' wrote: "Claiming many a success for Chandos, the redoubtable Borodin Trio, among the finest now heard on disc, apply themselves to the elegant, beautifully crafted Mendelssohn works – tuneful, light in character, satisfying".

BBC Music Magazine
Some may find the Borodin Trio's approach to first movements a touch wayward, but most will warm to the full-blooded Romanticism of their way with Mendelssohn. The scherzos in particular have a magical lightness; recording is warmly supportive.
