Notes & Reviews:

On their latest Ars Produktion release, the Fratres Trio impressively demonstrates that the saxophone, long established in jazz practice, now occupies a similar firm position in relation to the classical domain; both genres - presumed opposites - having more in common than one might think. Couleurs d'un Rêve collects seven works, three in arranged format that offer further proof of the saxophone's firm placement in the classical realm and the trio's award-winning qualities. The combination of saxophone, violin and piano gives rise to a new kind of trio: virtuoso, gripping and explosive.

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
The Fratres Trio brings great energy and excitement to the stage through daring tempos, nifty dynamics, perceptive phrasing, blazing fingers, and solid teamwork. The program, too, is a deft combination of inspired contemporary music and old favorites in new bottles, and if some listeners are doubtful about the transcriptions, they will find the original scores interesting, enjoyable, and skillfully written for the forces involved.

At the same time, the Trio could use more polish and maturity. Vanks is the most advanced and experienced of the three, performing with wonderful clarity and awareness. Rubin has a nice resonant timbre. Arakelyan is a very perceptive chamber musician, always striving for the perfect blend. And while the group creates several great moments. Still, Rubin, Arakelyan, and Vanks have the training, talent, and enthusiasm to go far, and chamber music aficionados will want to watch them in the years to come.
