Premiere recordings of the captivating, profound music of Elena Firsova...performed with devoted insight and sensitivity by the Marsyas Trio.
Julian Haylock, The Strad
It is Baudelaire rather than Mandelstam whom Firsova evokes with her most direct tribute to the admirable Marsyas Trio, A Triple Portrait ...At a time when modernism is slowly fading away as a model of choice for younger composers, Firsova’s music makes a plausible case for such deeper, darker echoes.
Arnold Whittall, Tempo
...these fine artists weaving some tremendous sounds around each other. They give this work a terrific performance finding out all of its depth and emotion.
Bruce Reader, The Classical Reviewer
The Marsyas Trio’s performance is refined; Vidovich’s flute playing languid and sinuous, Ren’s piano delicate and sensitive and Welbanks’ cello lends a darkness and gravitas to the sound without compromising the intimacy of the works.
