“The Gould Piano Trio, established players in this repertoire, prove masterly: nimble, agile and intense.”
“warmly played by the Gould Trio, who are particularly sensitive to the lyrical minuet-like third movement of [Op. 70 No. 2]...the Goudl Trio's playing is unfailingly musical...All fine performances, in first-class sound.”
“The charm of WoO38 is persuasively conveyed, with the group playing up thje work's galant origins. Their conversational ease in the opening movement works well...There are more dramatic readings of these works around but these performances are unfailingly musicianly”
