Harry van der Wal
Harry’s classical music corner, April 2017

I forgot how beautiful these trios are. …The C minor is a lovely and easy going work, with plenty of emotion coming to the surface without too much of a struggle. It has a certain intensity that makes the work rather special, and this you can hear in every single movement. As a whole this work is lovable and shows Villa Lobos his creativity in a complementary way. Now the Third piano trio is a different kettle of fish, for it’s mien is much more serious, and it’s intensity goes much deeper. …For me it encircles a musical world which has a strong appealing character, and so you will addictive quality. Complementary to it all is the excellent performance of the musicians involved, none of them known to me. Antonio Spiller was at the time of the recording concertmaster of the Bavarian Radio SO, Monique Duphil is highly regarded as a chamber music performer, and has appeared with many famous people. …Really a fantastic performance in good sound. © 2017 Harry’s classical music corner Read complete review
