Each instalment of The Florestan Trio’s Beethoven Piano Trio cycle was rapturously received. Reissued as a special-price box-set, this superb series of benchmark recordings should not be missed.
The Florestan Trio seems determined to extract every last ounce of energy, wit and spirit from these early works … the principal vehicle for conveying the music’s brightness is Susan Tomes’s finger-work, wonderfully precise and rhythmical. Gramophone
The playing of The Florestan Trio is memorable for its lyrical tenderness, its luminous sonorities and its rhythmic buoyancy. BBC
