Notes and Editorial Reviews
"The Gryphon Trio of Canada has recorded an eclectic range of music stretching from Mozart to the tangos of Astor Piazzolla... This is one of the most enjoyable accounts I have heard of the Archduke Trio I've heard in a long while. The Gryphon players are warm, spacious, and lyrical in the opening movement, while the slow movement - one of Beethoven's most profound sets of variations - is serene and deeply- felt without ever dragging, and the helter-skelter coda of the finale taken at a genuine presto that nevertheless leaves room for the required further acceleration in the closing moments... The middle work of the Op. 1 triptych receives a fine performance too with an affecting account of the radiant slow movement - the expressive
highpoint of the series as a whole... a beautifully recorded and strongly recommended disc. Not to be missed!"
***** 5 out of 5 stars for performance, 5 out of 5 starts for sound! *****
