“The Trio Sitkovetsky’s playing displays colour, liveliness and a strong feel for Mendelssohn’s voice. It has all the ‘fire and vivacity, the flow in a word the mastery’ that Ferdinand Hiller described after hearing the premiere in 1840. Wu Qian dazzles but never blinds and her seemingly easy-virtuosity is well matched by violinist Alexander Sitkovetsky. There is always the sense of three individuals listening to one another to create a satisfying whole.”
