They command respect for their lustrous tone and unerring interpretive intelligence. The Ravel Trio glowed in their hands; it was properly perfect and properly alive.
THE NEW YORK TIMES
A magnificent amalgam of lucid, glistening tonal brilliance, severely calibrated dynamics and elegant phrasing. The Laurel Trio seems destined to make a substantial contribution to the music of our time.
NEW YORK CONCERT REVIEW
A fusion of congenial talents who have performed together for five years to attain an artistic unity of rare vision.
Performances of the Triple Concerto are rare. Cellist Amy Levine Tsang set the tone for the first movement, acquitting her solos with a touching lyricism the other instrumentalists echoed in their solos. The Laurel Trio caught the fire of the final movement, with each soloist flinging the dance theme among themselves with fun-loving aplomb. The music found an appropriately happy medium between speed and clarity.
Violinist Sunghae Anna Lim and cellist Amy Levine Tsang found ways to make their instruments sound a bit Eastern and exotic, an effect I had not heard before, either in live performance or on record. They were quite convincing, and this was only one example of the extra dimensions they found in the music.
ALLENTOWN MORNING CALL
Shimmering tonal brilliance…astute and nuanced interpretation…a clarity of tone and a delicate sense of timing made for a lustruously polished performance.
The Laurel Trio demonstrated impeccable and solid performances. In terms of execution, one cannot ask for greater instrumental cohesion and transparency. They achieved a spotless interpretation.
The energy and drive of this spirited trio spread from the stage to the audience, which rewarded the ensemble with three curtain calls and a standing ovation.
