"the Trio Lirico plays [...] with an energy, an intensity, and a joy that is simply mesmerizing. [...] The interpretations are authentic and lively, the convincing result of a well-functioning communication." (Pizzicato)
The repertoire for string trio is comparatively narrow; however, in addition to the renowned works of Mozart, Beethoven or Reger, it also holds surprises, new discoveries and new compositions. When selecting the music for this recording, the Trio Lirico ventured off the beaten track, opening up a broad stylistic and expressive spectrum with early twentieth century works from Belgium and Hungary by Eugène Ysaÿe, Ernst von Dohnányi and Zoltán Kodály, showcasing impressionistic elements as well as folkloristic moments. A string trio by Péter Eötvös completes the programme: a haunting commemorative composition featuring a multitude of different playing techniques, modes of expression and soundscapes. The composer himself regards Trio Lirico's interpretation as authentic and exemplary.
