Notes & Reviews:

The Argenta Trio gives whirlwind virtuosic readings of Mendelssohn's masterpieces. The Piano Trios are works that influenced many of the great composers of the era, including Johannes Brahms. In reviewing the D minor Trio, Robert Schumann wrote that Mendelssohn was "the Mozart of the nineteenth century, the most illuminating of musicians." The superb Argenta Trio is resident chamber ensemble at the University of Nevada, Reno.
