Notes & Reviews:

"Is there a better trio than the Florestan playing today? All three members are consummate artists, outstandinf instrumentalists, and ensemble players to the manner born, but it's the playing of pianist Susan Tomes that carries these performances to their greatest heights. But what renders her playing here still more remarkable is the exemplary precision with which it's matched to the different sonorities and qualities of attack." ***** - Jeremy Siepmann BBC

'This stands out among modern recordings of this fine work [and] the Movement in B flat makes a freshly endearing bonus. This will be hard to beat and one eagerly awaits the E flat major Trio' (Gramophone)

'Marvellously alive, the phrasing playful when required, delicate but never precious, [the trio] frolic through with palpable joy and an unerring sense of ensemble. Placed alongside this CD, even the Beaux Arts Trio, old favourites in this repertoire, start to look staid' (The Times)

'I urge you not to miss the Florestan disc which certainly becomes my version of choice for the B flat Trio and the early trio movement' (Fanfare, USA)
