The String Trio is a fascinating piece. It is a most ingenious expansion or redefinition of sonata form. There is much poignancy and anxiety in the piece and some Shostakovich-like fury and despair, [with] the melody eerily rising above the drama. It is a passionate, at times anguished piece, and a strangely moving one.
Michael Oliver, Gramophone Magazine,1/1/0001
