Notes & Reviews:

'The most sensitive reportage that these works have enjoyed since the advent of digital recording' (The Independent)

'One of the best and most beautiful ensembles to emerge blinking into the sunlight from London's conservatoires in recent years' (Evening Standard)

'A remarkably gifted young ensemble who bring classical elegance to these glorious works' (Classic CD)

'Here is the finest string ensemble in Britain' (The Daily Mail)

'An oustanding pair of discs' (The Daily Telegraph)

'This repertoire has been recorded by some world-famous artists in the past, but no performances have given me as much pleasure as these. A real treat' (BBC Music Magazine)

'[A] startlingly good debut' (The Scotsman)

Sunday Times
These are not mere student essays. The weight and fullness of sound Beethoven gets from the three instruments is extraordinary...Op 9, No 3, is particularly fine, with one of Beethoven's most beautiful slow movements, but No 2 is hardly less so. Opp 3 and 8, too, are rewarding works, as the Leopold trio demonstrate in their masterly performances.
