Notes & Reviews:

This brilliant recording of Mendelssohn's Piano Trios celebrates the 200th anniversary of the composer's birth. Trio con Brio Copenhagen was founded by the Korean sisters Soo-Jin Hong and Soo-Kyung Hong and the Danish pianist Jens Elvekjaer in Vienna in 1999, and first drew attention with a sensational performance that took the highest prize at Germany's prestigious ARD Munich Competition in 2002.

Classic FM Magazine, November 2011 *****
Not since the famous coupling by Isaac Stern and friends for CBS...have Mendelssohn's two piano trios been performed with such emotional intensity on disc. If anything the Trio Con Brio goes one better with playing that caresses the lower end of the dynamic spectrum as much as it exalts in the music's climaxes. Every phrase soars and pulsates with the excitement of fresh discovery.
