Heartwarming concert at the Museumchurch in Schokland
Erasmus Trio Plays 'Home Match'
Almere (NL), Tue, 28. Feb 2012On Sunday February 19th the Erasmus Trio played at the Museumchurch in Schokland - a review

Sunday February 19th 2012 the Erasmus Trio played a romantic programme at the Museumchurch in Schokland. 'A kind of home match,' as they called it themselves.
"Pianist Thomas Herrmann, violinist Vera Laporeva and cellist Xiaojia Xu showed their warmth side," wrote Wouter Ruifrok in De Noordoostpolder of February 21th, "which resulted in an unexpected merry and light Beethoven Pianotrio in B flat major, a one-movement jewel.
Next came a heartwarming, almost passionate Mozart Trio, in B flat major as well, which melted and charmed. Light and elegant pianoplaying was coloured by a well-balanced cooperation of the strings, a quiet flow of melody interrupted by moments of fervour.
The finale was an unexpected classical Shostakovich Trio, an early composition in C major. After a beautiful and cautious introduction the trio effortless became violent, restless, with great contrasts. Again the lyric qualities of the cellist shone out: glowing, with broad gestures and above all enchanting, bearing evidence that also in Russian Romanticism the Erasmus Trio is seductively much at home."
