Notes & Reviews:

"These are unrivaled performances, with daring, tonal allure and musical intelligence that sweep the board comprehensively" -BBC Music Magazine

The Times
Energy bubbles from the outer movements of the first of Mendelssohn's two trios: it is amassed gradually and cumulatively through biting articulation, springing piano playing and a meticulous balance of voices. Stefan Mendl brings clarity and ever-changing light to the long central song without words, and Wolfgang Redik's violin makes this a midsummer night's dream of a Scherzo. Three stars.
