AUDIENCE COMMENTS

Excellent finale to a season! Congratulations Harry on our astuteness in picking outstanding performers! Keep up your devotion to music and for sharing it. Many thanks! (Anonymous)

The Trio were fantastic. Really enjoyed the Beethoven. (M.P.L)

Trio con Brio – Hurry Back!!!  Magnificent Beethoven! Jens commentary os most informative. Mendelssohn was played with such emotion. Brilliant! (A.M.)

Not usually a big piano fan, but this guy really did it for me. Fantastic!! Love the Trio as well. Especially loved the Shostakovich. Glad I bought 2 of their CD’s! The Mendelssohn was fantastic! (Anonymous)

Wow Fantastic!! Their cohesiveness only served to enhance their individuality and vice versa. Thank you! (Anonymous)

The Dvorak encore was the best I have heard that played. (Anon)

Energy, contrast and nuance. Outstanding interpretation of the music and passion for it. I thought I had died and gone to heaven. (Anonymous)

Artistry at its best. I got a new appreciation of Shostakovich. The introduction to the Mendelssohn was a very helpful prelude to an outstanding performance/. So what else is new? Another A-1 concert in a great season of music – and a good topping for the 25th Anniversary! (D.L.)

1. Best dresses to look at, ever. 2. Fearless Trio and exciting – nothing beats togetherness and breathtaking intensity.– Beethoven superb brilliant sounds Fearless!!! risk-taking. 3. Mendelssohn – so “in synch” with each other; any 1 of (the) 3 can seamlessly take lead and then blend back into (the) background. So much energy. 4. What a superb level of musicianship. Sounds so blended and assured. (C.B.)

The most enjoyable concert yet! BRAVO!! (C.B.)
