There are good notes and the recording has been well judged, allowing the trio to play out with excellent tone and ensemble. © 2016 MusicWeb International Read complete review

Fanfare, November 2015

…the Lincoln Trio, assisted by four additional musicians, makes a compelling case for these works. A wonderful discovery on my part! © 2015 Fanfare Read complete review

Chicago Tribune, May 2015

Sensitive and polished readings by the Lincoln Trio and assisting musicians reveal what is best about this neglected repertory, with its melodic charm, harmonic grace and seamless blending of French and Spanish national influences. A benchmark Turina compilation. © 2015 Chicago Tribune Read complete review

Kenneth Keaton
American Record Guide, March 2015

[The Lincoln Trio’s] performances here can’t be faulted. They are technically secure and comfortable with Turina’s language, whether French or Spanish nationalist or a fusion of both. Collaborative musicians in the larger works blend in seamlessly. I can’t imagine much finer performances. © 2015 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

David Hurwitz, February 2015

Here is yet another intelligent project from Cedille, and a real bonanza for chamber music lovers. This two-disc set contains, first of all, the complete music for piano trio, expertly played with passion and precision by the Lincoln Trio.

I never cease to be amazed at how…it’s still possible to put together worthwhile programs of serious classical music that are wholly winning and simply delightful. This release would grace any collection; it’s a treat. © 2015 Read complete review

The WholeNote, February 2015

Members of the Lincoln trio not only play with passion but also highlight beautifully the sublime sounds of muted strings (Turina loved using this effect) and effortlessly convey the fugal aspects present in many of these compositions. The ensemble sound blossoms in larger works, with each guest artist adding a bit of individual sound to Turina’s music. © 2015 The WholeNote Read complete review

[The Lincoln Trio is]…a world-class chamber ensemble, providing beautifully polished performances, and must be commended for their foray into this little known but highly rewarding repertoire. © 2015 Expedition Audio Read complete review

Enjoy the Music, January 2015

Sound Quality:

The Lincoln Trio give richly committed performances of all these works, and on Disc 2 Ayane Kozasa proves an ideal partner in the larger works, including solo presence in Escena Andaluza. The gorgeous, intense sound of the unison strings in the Quartet, well supported by the piano, is particularly breathtaking, but each of the works has its own excitement.

Cedille’s recording…is very fine, bringing out the warmth and beauty of all the players, while giving a clear stereo image of each but with perfect balance and blending. © 2015 Enjoy the Music Read complete review
