“The sound of this trio is neat and demonstrates the essence of a trumpet trio.... With this minimal instrumentation as a trio you can hear the subtle interplay between the musicicans, which makes it more enjoyable.
Their playing never gets boring, because it's sophisticated and the musicians react to each other.” (translated)
