“… Trio Accord provided one of the most enthralling concerts that I have heard in years. In a stunning performance of the Bach Goldberg Variations, they teased out the strands of counterpoint with the utmost clarity and virtuosity.
The ensemble is impeccable, has a beautiful cohesive sound, and plays with unerring accuracy of intonation. They held the audience’s attention throughout and at the finish, the listeners erupted into a standing ovation.”
“Beautifully refined opening Aria. dazzling passage work. all was performed stylishly and with total commitment. And, need I say, virtuosity. Trio Accord’s performance of Dmitry Sikovetsky’s masterly arrangement of the Goldbergs. provided a transcendent musical experience”
“The members of the Canadian ensemble Trio Accord have clearly considered the various issues of style and interpretation raised when performing this string trio arrangement of Bach’s keyboard masterpiece. The close church recording offers a pleasing intimacy of ambience. Thought provoking… sheds new light on this work by drawing out expressive elements only hinted at in harpsichord or modern piano performance.”
“… extremely satisfying. The playing is excellent… both from an individual and ensemble viewpoint, and the recording ambience… recorded in a church, is warm and resonant.”
“They are imaginative, especially talented and a rarity. String trios of their quality are not easy to find in Canada, if at all!”
