"...The ATOS trio demonstrates excellent ensemble... The tempo and dynamics are well chosen. The piano’s part is dense, but Thomas Hoppe’s playing is very clean. The cello has a good weight, and the violin is very expressive. They play with excellent drive, and their ending is ecstatic.On the whole, I am very happy with this disc. The two piano trios of Mendelssohn are two intensely beautiful works. The problem is that they are so much alike, structurally and musically. In really good performances this becomes an advantage, not a drawback. The ATOS trio gives us a powerful interpretation which is not inferior to the best “standard options”. It can be recommended as a disc to own, if you want only one recording of these works. The recording quality is very good. This is great music, and the presentation is worthy of it."
