Trio con Brio Copenhagen receives an excellent review in Süddeutsche Zeitung

FROM SOUL TO SOUL
… What sounds already tremendously inspired, exciting and transparent on three CDs has an even greater thrill live at the limit of playability… Rarely do you hear such a furor in the outer movements without ever bringing the poise of the instruments out of balance. In the fantastically beautifully played Andante espressivo it was there again, the moment that penetrates deep into the soul… the moment of deepest, almost painful emotion.

Trio con Brio Copenhagen receives another fine review on their recordings of the complete Beethoven piano trios – this time in the Spanish Music Magazine: Scherzo

The trio plays its first concert since Corona-lockdown in DR Koncerthuset without audience, but live on radio and receives a great review in Politiken.

“… A super-trio took their finest concert attire on in radio to remind us about what it is we miss. It was thought-provoking and touching to hear Trio con Brio playing music from the time of the Spanish flu at the Thursday concert at P2. There is something touching about the situation: Three musicians giving a concert in a huge, empty concert hall (due to the Covid-19 pandemic). Because they just so much want to play…”
