1. R.T. Comments: Splendid musicianship, each a master of her instrument. Great program!  Further evidence that intelligent comments by the artists add a valuable dimension to the program.  The Boston Trio made the sortie into the cold night worthwhile, in spades.

2. B.A. Comments: What a delight!  The Arvo Part piece was the surprise of the evening.  Thanks to KPMG for their sponsorship. They must be good accountants who have good taste too.

3.  L.A. Comments: Liked the introduction of musicians.  They seemed to be very in tune with each other.  Good eye contact, facial expressions.  I liked the way the cellist passionately moved her head.  They’re enthusiastic, smiley, absolutely delightful, inspiring.  We are so blessed to have this (series) in Winnipeg. Thanks for the pencil.

4.  S.G. Comments: Wonderful.  I thought I didn’t like trios, but this one has changed my mind!  Great program and incredible musicianship.  Great music.

5.  D.B. Comments: My first let down in years!  The piano was glorious and perfect, but both strings – for all their articulate delicacy – lacked “power’.  Both vis-a-vis the piano and in terms of “commitment” or “passion”.

6.  Anonymous: Excellent concert.  Each of the musicians was outstanding. Made audience really “feel” the music.
