In a recent review, the New York Times praised the Trio for its “elegant rendition” of Piazzolla’s Tangos. The Washington Post said the trio “does its namesake proud” in “an intriguing and beautifully played program” with “convincing elegance, near effortless lightness and grace.” The group has been called “virtuosos of classical and contemporary chamber music” in one profile for Russian television.

The Trio is committed to commissioning, performing and recording new works from contemporary composers. Since its founding, the Trio has greatly expanded the repertoire available for the oboe, bassoon and piano, with more than 20 new works written or arranged for the group, including three triple concertos for Trio and full orchestra. The Trio has also made a commitment to explore and promote musics that reflect its members’ African, Asian, Eastern European and Jewish roots.
