"The Munich Dvorak Trio finds the customary angst in the 'Dumky' trio's opening but doesn't shake it off so easily for the bright, dancing allegro that follows. The tempo is markedly slower than is customary (allowing for some beautifully articulated playing). Perhaps the Munich Trio's is the more mature approach - after all, how many adults have the childlike ability to forget their troubles and jump for joy? The Munich ensemble's interpretive weight affects the remaining movements as well, especially the poignant fourth movement, which here loses its mystery and winds up sounding like a song of bereavement. Dvorak's youthful B-flat trio finds the group in a lighter, gayer mood, bringing to the work the requisite energy and youthful ardor. Again, the playing is seamless and splendid, and it's captured in very fine sound." www.classicstoday.com

"Herausragende CD des Dvorák Trios […] Selten ist die Entwicklung des Komponisten so deutlich und verständlich nachvollziehbar, wie auf dieser CD. In ihrer musikalischen Qualität ist sie Kammermusik-Liebhabern sehr zu empfehlen."
