Notes & Reviews:

One has no problem naming famous String Quartet ensembles; however, String Trios simply cannot make the same boast! Even on the repertoire of the side, composers have produced many more significant quartets than they have string trios. Thus, it was something of a minor miracle when three musicians such as violinist Arthur Grumiaux, Georges Janzer (Végh Quartet violist) and Janzer's wife, the cellist Eve Czako, finally met to perform works of Mozart and Beethoven. The resulting June 8, 1966 Schwetzingen Castle recital is a most memorable concert that will welcome repeated listening.

BBC Music Magazine, August 2015
This intriguing coupling of early Beethoven with Mozart reveals both kinship and individual styles. Recorded in a single concert, the Grumiaux Trio's performances are of burnished tone and aria-like expressiveness.
