 The Trio Fontane, one of Switzerland’s most exciting young ensembles, here presents a programme spanning the Classical, Romantic and Modern eras. Beethoven’s tempestuous, early Piano Trio in c minor op. 1 No. 3 so exploded the bounds of the genre that his teacher Haydn advised him not to publish it. Smetana’s superb Trio in g minor, inspired by the tragic death of the composer’s young daughter, found an early advocate in Franz Liszt. And Hans Schaeuble’s Piano Trio was one of the last works written by one of Switzerland’s most successful composers of the mid-20th century, whose music is both modern and yet accessible.

Robert Nemecek - Ensemble magazine - August/September 2013


 "... this Swiss ensemble ... is professionally polished and turns in robust readings of the Beethoven and Smetana trios ... because of the Schaeuble, for which I can find no other recordings and the unique combinations of works on this disc that yyou may find it intriguing."

Jerry Dubins - Fanfare - July/August 2013


 "The members of Trio Fontane give an immensely impressive reading of the Beethoven. The instruments are well balanced and the players interactive as thoroughbred chamber musicians. Tempos are ideal in all four movements and the collective interpretation is searching, sensitive and meaningful, not least in terms of dynamic contrasts, phrasing and clarity,quite obviously the musicians have thought long and prepared assiduously... The recording is excellent in  its tonal naturalness and balance..."

Colin Anderson - International Record Review - December 2012
