Notes & Reviews:

From the humorous to the sublime: on its third GENUIN-CD the magnificent Trio Ex Aequo offers a cross section of Beethoven's works for piano trio. From an early work to the mature Ghost Trio and the delightful variations based on the melody Ich bin der Schneider Kakadu. The timbral palette of the trio (Matthias Wollong - violin, Matthias Moosdorf - cello, a member of the Leipzig String Quartet and Olga Gollej - Piano) is large and meets the enormous demands of the three works in each moment. You won't even know which work you will first want to hear again: the pale sonorities, the fine web of the Ghost Trio or the mirth of the Kakadu, which is unequalled in Beethoven's oeuvre...

Gramophone Magazine
For the Trio Ex Aequo, content and expression are inextricably tied, structure respectedůviolent transitory outbursts are meticulously graded, pianist Olga Gollej balancing herself astutely with her partners... a performance of stature.

American Record Guide, July/August 2015
The high quality of the playing is matched by the sound. When the playing and the sound are both excellent, it is indeed a treat.
