CD Reviews
Gramophone, Dec 2018: “The performances throughout are excellent and involving”
BBC Music Magazine, Dec 2018: Performance: 4-stars
The Strad, 2016: “this glowingly engineered album, all premiere recordings performed with devoted insight and sensitivity by the Marsyas Trio”
Tempo, June/July 2019: ‘Concerto for Piccolo’ starts out somewhat reminiscent of early Rihm, but then transitions into a mysterious and evocative Jolivet-type territory. It’s [Weir Several Concertos] a fundamentally and appealingly odd set of pieces, made all the more engaging through the electrifyingly delicate performances here.”
"the persuasive assurance of these performers and their technical assistants is consistently of the highest calibre." Arnold Whittall - Gramophone June issue 2024
