The Florestan Trio
GRAMOPHONE EDITOR'S CHOICE
SIMON BATES' CD OF THE WEEK (CLASSIC FM)
FINANCIAL TIMES 10 BEST CDs OF THE YEAR
'At the start of K548's airy finale, Susan Tomes' gracefully demure piano is swiftly countered by Anthony Marwood's raffish forte riposte: and this sense of delighted, quick-witted dialogue between quasi-operatic protagonists runs through the whole movement, abetted by touches of sly, subtle timing, from Marwood especially. No performance of this piece has ever made me smile as much … Talk of an outright winner is always dangerous. For my taste, though, the Florestan's sparkling, inventive performances, on this disc and its companion, make them a top recommendation for the complete Mozart trios, their claims enhanced by the warm, ideally balanced recording' (Gramophone)
'The Florestan Trio get it exactly right, with Susan Tomes' exquisite pianisim perfectly supported by violinist Anthony Marwood's lithe, highly articulate playing and cellist Richard Lester's finely judged asides. Another winner from this wonderful ensemble' (Classic FM Magazine *****)
'These are certainly performances to be treasured, with the playing unfailingly stylish and full of imaginative touches … Their new recording can be unreservedly recommended' (BBC Music Magazine)

I'm beginning here to resurrect some of the works that "disappeared" from Avax or were "abandoned" from the original uploaders. There's not a real thought behind it, I'm just cleaning up my HDs and following the wind. What I downloaded long ago is flowing back. All credits go to the first uploader. Enjoy...
