"This is fascinating playing, uncorrupted by hipness or gimmickry. The trio plays . . . with complete dedication and assurance . . . Trio Appassionata is at once weirder and more controlled than the Beaux Arts Trio . . . The music-making is as impressive and dangerous as a granite cliff."

- International Record Review 

"Any chamber music recording that’s so forward-looking that the reward at the end is Ives’s Piano Trio deserves automatic respect."

- Gramophone

"The execution reflects the performers’ keen awareness of the rhetorical significance . . . attached to sonority, resulting in an account that encourages subsequent listening in greater detail."



"All the pieces on this disc have a sense of well wrought dialectic, each of the composers wanting us to listen to a carefully structured argument. All the works fit into an expressive arc, all are rewarding but require work from the listener. The performances from Trio Appassionata are exemplary."
