Notes and Editorial Reviews

[T]he piano trios...are revelatory... The two Op. 70 Trios are given with great gusto (the opening Allegro of the Ghost, for example) and perception—in fact, I can't think of any other interpreters who so successfully underline the sheer inventiveness of Beethoven's writing.

-- Gramophone [5/1994]
