Recording reviews

About Fauré, Chausson & Satie Piano Trios:

“…with consummate musicianship. Chausson’s G minor work comes to brooding, intense life in their hands…”

About Ravel and Saint-Saëns:

“The Fidelio Trio’s virtuosity is of a high order…”

Roger Nichols, BBC Music Magazine
May 2018

 

“The Fidelio Trio plays it with such delicacy of touch and suavity of tone that its Frenchness and its closeness to the Ravel coupling are never in doubt.”

The Strad
January 2017

 

“The Fidelio’s interpretation possesses admirable clarity and definition, polish and brio, qualities they bring also to a very different world of sound in the Ravel Trio. In both works their interpretative touch is secure, their rapport instinctive. Together with their eloquence and passion, this all adds up to something special. ”

About Rhona Clarke, A Different Game:

“This latter piece was written for the Fidelio Trio, whose expertise is second to none among present-day ensembles. The programme works well as a sequence too – the trios separated by the heady evocation of Gleann Dá Loch (1995) and the sombre choral underlay of Con coro (2011), then rounded off by the tranquillity of In umbra (2000). ”

About Rhona Clarke, Dancing in Daylight:

“The first is full of indefinite direction, the second features rolling Boogie patterns and saucy skittering strings and segues into an unexpected Tango. The gruff interjection of the cello temporarily brings jollity to a halt. The finale is deeply threnodic and the expressive heart of the work… Well recorded, it seems superfluous to add that the performances are wholly sympathetic to the four composers’ idioms.”

Jonathan Woolf, MusicWeb International
July 2016

 

“The Fidelio Trio open the following movement dynamically with a fast moving rhythmic theme full of blues inflected ideas to which these players bring a terrific style and panache. ”

Bruce Reader, The Classical Reviewer
March 2016

 

“Kudos to the musicians of the Fidelio Trio.”

About Michael Nyman, Piano Trios:

“The Fidelio Trio perfectly handles the slight changes of rhythmic pattern and colours that keep alive the five movements of Poczatek. …showcasing The Fidelio player’s warmth, creating some beautiful string tone. ”

The Strad

 

“Insistent motivic reiterations leavened with lyricism and compassion, inspired by war, industrial archaeology and birdlife and given fine performances…”

BBC Music Magazine
February 2013

 

“…a brilliant performance by The Fidelio Trio…”

The Sunday Times
