"The striding second movement theme is splendidly realised and relished with Monika Leonhard, a pupil of Alfred Brendel, enjoying every bar on its return during the finale. The cellist Klaus Kanngiesser and the violinist Rainer Kussmaul are no less compelling."
"Those unfamiliar with the extraordinary Naxos label should hear what they've been missing---this Schubert disc is, to my knowledge, the best place to start. For about seven bucks, you can have this absolutely brilliant performance, recorded in equally superb sound. The Stuttgart Piano Trio is technically flawless, occasionally breathtaking. They play with intelligence, joy, and respectful understatement. The tone colors are captured in extraordinary fidelity, and the ambience is entirely realistic, without bloating in the lower ranges."
