Notes & Reviews:

"In Trio No. 2, technique and expression impressively fuse as Hoffman's own style solidifies. Snatches of melody over long pedal-points open the work, and rapidly cut to the chase where short, abrasive phrases alternately collide and fuse. Sparse, stepwise melodic fragments evoke the sounds and silences of late Shostakovich... We only can hope that the Karp Trio's passionate, committed performances will inspire other piano trios to investigate such meaty, engaging works by an American composer of substance who ought to be better known." -Classics Today (9/9)
