Penguin Guide, January 2009

The partnership of Jacques Thibaud, Pablo Casals and Alfred Cortot was perhaps the most celebrated of its kind—and certainly the most famous pre-war trio. The Trio was formed in 1925 and made this set two years later so that the actual sound is wanting the body and colour of later recordings. For those growing up in the 1940s, this was the Mendelssohn Trio, so completely did the three masters seem attuned to its spirit. They are technically immaculate, supremely lyrical, and their apparent spontaneity of feeling is born of firm musical discipline. War Marston’s transfer gives this exalted performance, with its miraculously characterized Scherzo, a new lease of life.
