Notes and Editorial Reviews

REVIEWS:
BBC Music (6/98, p.55) - Performance: 5 (out of 5), Sound: 5 (out of 5) - "The Vienna Trio's latest Nimbus release combines electrifying readings of Mendelssohn's two piano trios, for once not presented as piano concertos in microcosm, but as tersely argued and powerfully integrated works....These are unrivalled performances, with daring tonal allure and musical intelligence that sweep the board comprehensively."
