Notes & Reviews:

In 2011, three world-class musicians, Italian pianist Paolo Giacometti, Scottish violinist Candida Thompson and Serbian-Russian cellist Xenia Jankovic decided to join forces and form the Hamlet Piano Trio. All three have earned their stripes, both as soloists and as chamber musicians, and their reputation as a trio continues to grow worldwide. On their début recording, the group performs Mendelssohn's two Piano Trios.

American Record Guide, May/June 2016
A good test of any performance is whether it pulls you in and holds your attention. On my first day of listening to this program, I played it twice straight through without being bored for an instant. It is that musical and compelling. The sound is as good as the performances.
