Notes & Reviews:

This is the first CD for the Trio Atanassov, an award-winning and upcoming trio from France.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
This is the fourth recording of Smetana's marvelous Trio I have reviewed, and it is my favorite. The violin's tone is rich, dark, and colorful; and the cello's is warm and stately. The piano is alternately powerful and delicate. There are many moments in this piece that require much sensitivity, such as the many complex unison passages, and they are all executed with perfect clarity and thoughtfulness. Dvorak's emotionally turbulent F-minor Trio also is a fine reading. The balance is perfect all through the performance. Many passages, especially in II, are dense in texture, but played here delicately and sensitively. This release will delight anyone who likes Slavic chamber music.
