Notes & Reviews:

This new CD in Genuin's Movimentos series features compositions by Beethoven, Mozart, Haydn, Liszt and pianist/ composer Kit Armstrong, who is a pupil of Alfred Bendel. This new trio also includes Alfred's son, cellist Adrian Bendel. The third member, Andrej Bielow is the first violinist of the Szymanowski Quartet.

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
Liszt's late reworking of a piano piece from First Year of Pilgrimage is somewhat of an oddity, since chamber music is by no means common or even particularly noteworthy amid his vast output. As the liner notes observe, Liszt's arrangement "savors extremes to the full", but the performance maintains a tense restraint perhaps guided by Armstrong's distaste for romantic extremes. Here again the musicianship is admirable and engaging, though I find the Beethoven in particular best rewards numerous hearings.
