Adaskin String Trio
"Superb playing… a flexible command of flow and phrase with instrumental power and eloquence and a nutty tonal richness. …the Trio savours the sensuality of Beethoven’s string writing and the intoxicating profusion of tunes while plumbing the emotional depths that lie beneath." -Gramophone
This dynamic ensemble commands an impressive string trio repertoire ranging from Haydn and Schubert to Dohnanyi, Villa-Lobos, Schnittke, and composers of today including Chick Corea, Paul Simon and Michael White. Gramophone Magazine hailed the trio's "superb playing" on their two-CD set of the five Beethoven String Trios, the cornerstone of the repertoire. A particular pleasure for the trio is introducing audiences to gorgeous and rarely heard gems by lesser known masters such as Taneyev, Martinu, Rozsa, Berkeley and Klein. The group is also available for program with oboist Tom Gallant and pianist Sally Pinkas.
