Notes and Editorial Reviews

The original release of this album was named Stereo Review's 1988 Record of the Year.

R E V I E W S:

The Kim/Ma/Ax trio on CBS offer no less than the Dumky Trio as a partner to the Third Trio. Their version is more attractive also for the fact that whereas the playing is similarly strong within a big, wide-ranging recording, there is much more subtlety and a more inward quality. It's noticeable, for instance, how Ax scales down his dynamics when one of his partners is to the fore, and here the cello seems to be far more in the picture generally. This version is recommended to those who prefer a bold, big-boned approach to Dvorak's piano trios.
