Notes & Reviews:

Founded in 2007 at the Yehudi Menuhin School, the Sitkovetsky Trio has now emerged as one of the outstanding young trios of today, in high demand throughout Europe. Praised by The Strad for 'unbounded, tireless energy', and by Classical Source for 'formidable technique with a mature understanding of the music', the ensemble has been supported by the Wigmore Hall Emerging Talent scheme.

The Sitkovetsky Trio's recital at Wigmore Hall in September 2013 is now available on CD, and features two great works of the genre. Brahms's Piano Trio No. 3 in C minor, arguably one of the composer's most concentrated and intense scores, precedes Schubert's Piano Trio No. 2 in E flat, first performed in 1828 in a concert consisting entirely of Schubert's own music - the only event of its kind to take place in his lifetime.

Sunday Times, 2nd November 2014
The excellent Sitkovetsky make a strong case for [Brahms's] terse, passionate work...They also give a superb account of the Schubert], revealing its full greatness and boldly demonstrating how the long finale works best when uncut.

International Record Review, January 2015
They control well Schubert's long development, keeping cool heads.

Gramophone Magazine, January 2015
Wu as primus inter pares often rises to the occasion in Brahms but doesn't measure up to the bewildering kaleidoscope of power, poetry and turbulence that characterises Schubert. Her playing, though technically practised, is exact and of a remorseless determination that her partners mostly follow.
