Notes & Reviews:

This dynamic group, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, has been exploring the remarkable variety displayed in the Beethoven Trios in many of their concerts over the years. SOMM has recorded them live at the famous St. George's Concert Hall, Bristol, before capacity audiences and these concerts have been a huge success. Volume 1 will launch the Trio's 20th anniversary celebrations!

BBC Music Magazine
The joyous ebullience of the Piano Trio in G, Op. 1 No. 2, with its expansive first movement, set the tone for the evening - the strings filled with warmth, the piano sound exquisite. The Largo con espressione glowed; the Scherzo lived up to its name, and the tempo seemed spot-on for the energetic Finale ... Then it was on to the big-name work of the evening: the Ghost Trio. The initial furor of the opening theme was explosive, and there was a real sense of the music wanting to take flight ... The terrific Presto was met with cheers suggesting an audience twice the size.
