Notes & Reviews:

Pleasure, Spirit and Art'is the Dresden Philharmonic String Trio's GENUIN debut CD. These three high-ranking musicians bring together compositions by Beethoven and his teachers - Haydn and Albrechtsberger - and end with the music of the young Bonn spitfire himself, his scintillating Serenade, Op. 8 that seems as if it'd been written for the spirited playing of these fine Dresden musicians.

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
Johann Georg Albrechtsberger (1736-1809) was a respected teacher and significant theorist. I found his trio very enjoyable. It is a good example of stile galant - perfectly balanced, melodically and harmonically simple, emotionally reticent and extremely light-hearted. There are no bumps or rough edges whatsoever. It is clearly the work of a disciplined and intelligent craftsman. Haydn's two-movement trio is, as expected, perfectly crafted as well. It offers a clear link between the elegant simplicity of the galant style and the hints of romanticism in Beethoven's early trio. Taken as a whole, this program gives a sense of how chamber music progressed over these few decades. The performances are excellent, and the ensemble gives each work a distinctly different character and flavor.
