Calling its playing "spontaneous and commanding," the New York Times said, "This could be the first string trio in some time to have a major career."
With its charm, youthful exuberance and astounding virtuosity, the trio has delighted audiences of all ages in large and small venues. In the U.S., the trio has appeared at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall, New York City’s Frick Collection, Washington D.C.’s National Gallery, hundreds of other venues including Stanford University, the Caramoor Festival, the Cleveland Museum of Art, and cities including Boston, Los Angeles, Chicago, Pittsburgh, San Francisco, San Diego, Milwaukee, Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Memphis, Indianapolis, Phoenix, Tucson, Salt Lake City and Honolulu.
As Ensemble-in-Residence at the 2001 Florida International Festival, the trio drew an audience of more than 2,000 to its final concert. The group has also given successful residencies in settings ranging from conservatories to music camps to an Indian reservation in Arizona. Internationally, the trio has appeared at London’s Wigmore Hall, throughout Germany, in major Japanese cities on several tours, and at some of Europe’s most prestigious festivals including Belgium’s Musica Mundi and Gidon Kremer’s Echternach Festival in Luxembourg.
