David Barker
MusicWeb International, November 2016

My yardstick for the Beethoven trios is the Florestan Trio and that remains so, despite the very significant impression that TrioVanBeethoven has made on me here. …TrioVanBeethoven give a more genial and spacious reading of both works, especially Op. 1/2, where they take almost three minutes more. This is a smiling, playful even relaxed Beethoven, not necessarily adjectives normally applied to him, but not out of place in this work. …In case you begin to think these are old-fashioned big Romantic performances, let me assure you that they are not. There is nothing heavy about them; somehow TrioVanBeethoven have managed to balance a lightness of touch with a sense of repose. © 2016 MusicWeb International Read complete review
