Notes & Reviews:

'The Leopold String Trio have no fear of the competition. Theirs is a very impressive achievement and the coupling of these three works is, I think, unique. Enterprising lovers of chamber music should not hesitate. Strongly recommended' (International Record Review)

'This warmly engineered recording from the Leopold String Trio must rank amongst the finest ever commited to disc, the players relishing every opportunity to demonstrate their individual virtuosity whilst at the same time ensuring that subtlety of nuance and variety of texture are the order of the day...' (BBC Music Magazine)

'the Leopold Trio have their own strengths, not least a warm, pooled tone, a relaxed demeanour and an ability to search out the subtler aspects of the score. The sound is consistently excellent; add Calum MacDonald's authoritative notes and you have a confident recommendation' (Gramophone)

'This is a beautifully played and recorded program. Their performances here are superb... This new CD is a most desirable release. That's a "buy" recommendation' (Fanfare, USA)

'[The Leopold String Trio] have a vibrant yet relaxed approach to the music that makes one listen carefully, and they handle this varied and demanding repertoire with satisfying intensity' (American Record Guide)
