MusicWeb International’s Jim Westhead offers a thorough review of the Hermitage Piano Trio’s Rachmaninoff recording:
“The Hermitage trio plays…beautifully, aided by the mellifluous recording. … Reference Recordings have long been renowned for their recorded sound quality – I have several of their CDs and can testify to their fidelity. Here, on this SACD, which I have listened to in stereo via an SACD player, the recording is truly splendid, with all three members of the trio and their recording producer collaborating to present us with a superbly effective aural rendering of these early indications of Rachmaninoff’s slowly blossoming compositional mastery.”—Jim Westhead, MusicWeb International
