Notes & Reviews:

Tchaikovsky's Piano Trio, a work that is both elegiac and virtuosic, sets the tone of this recording. Dedicated to his friend Nikolay Rubinstein with the French epigraph "A la memoire d'un grand artiste," it shows great originality in its dimensions and style. A similarly ambitious work is Arensky's Trio Op.32, which is also dedicated to the memory of a musician - the cellist Karl Davidov (1838-89). This gem of chamber music, much less often played, constitutes the true discovery of this program, which features the celebrated French ensemble Trio Wanderer.

Gramophone Magazine, February 2014
The pianist, Vincent Coq, is both brilliant and sensitive, taking great trouble over balance with the strings while dazzling the ear with his lightly scintillating virtuosity in the more sparkling variation movements.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
Once upon a time both of these were rare. There were seldom more than two LPs of the Tchaikovsky at any given time, and maybe one of the Arensky. Now there are dozens of records of each. I enjoyed this and found it adequate it's a fine recording and performance.
