Salomon Jadassohn (1831–1902) is best remembered as a much-revered teacher at the Leipzig Conservatoire: his students included Busoni, Delius and Grieg; he himself studied with Liszt. Jadassohn’s own compositions, roundly forgotten for a hundred years, are only now beginning to attract attention. As these three trios demonstrate, they are central to the German Romantic tradition, with something of Schumann’s melodic inspiration, the spontaneity of Schubert and Mendelssohn’s classicising elegance – fused together with Jadassohn’s own impeccable craftsmanship.

‘Idiomatic performances, well recorded, in good mp3 sound. The music is influenced by Mendelssohn and others, but has its own voice, too’

Brian Wilson


MusicWeb - August 2010

‘The writing is conservative, mild-mannered, well-turned… The Syrius Trio play it with an unfailingly graceful and light touch that seems sure to endear these pieces to music lovers with a sweet tooth.’

Michael Dervan

Irish Times - 23 April 2010

‘...this disc will give great pleasure. These three trios, in the German Romantic tradition, are impeccably crafted and given with confidence and elegance by the Syrius Trio. I found them captivating, and have been playing this disc to anyone who’d listen. Don’t miss it !’

Peter Grahame Woolf

Musical Pointers - May 2010

‘...well crafted and very enjoyable. As always, Toccata have done lovers of chamber music great service by recording such a worthwhile but little-known composer’

Brian Wilson

MusicWeb - September 2010

‘Full marks again to Toccata Classics in their continued discovery of obscure 19th century German chamber music. I must admit that I had not heard of Salomon Jadassohn before this disc appeared but I most certainly should have done  […] What I first thought would be a run-of-the-mill composer has proved to be an enjoyable and original one. […] The performances are quite beautiful and the disc’s presentation clear and helpful.’
