Review of concert in Ens
Alluring and Heartwarming Ensemble
Almere (NL), Mon, 2. Mar 2009The Trio's concert on February 8, 2009 at the Museumkerk in Ens was first-rate in all its aspects according to reviewer Wouter Ruifrok.

In his review of the concert by the Erasmus Trio at the Museumkerk in Ens (Schokland) Wouter Ruifrok appears to be deeply touched by the sheer quality of the Trio (De Noordoostpolder, Tuesday February 10, 2009). Whether it was in Boccherini's Pianotrio in e, the more melancholic Russian Songs by Glinka or the Dances from Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker, the ensemble always stroke the right note in terms of articulation, rhythm, tempi and natural cadence.
"The Trio could be admired in full in Schumann's Pianotrio in F opus 80," writes Ruifrok. "One could hear that the music was the pianist's favourite. Passionate playing in the first movement was followed by affecting intimacy in the middle one. The ensemble's natural feeling for cadence again could be observed in the last movement, where the rhetoric power of the Erasmus Trio played the leading part in the flowing and warm ending. Ensemble playing of the most alluring and heartwarming kind."
