Five out of Five by P-G Bergfors of Goteborgsposten (Swedish dayly newspaper)

CELESTIAL SCHUBERT

Such riches, such a gift! The two Schubert Piano Trios for the first time on the same maxed out CD, in a luminous, well balanced recording. And the way these three Japanese sisters are playing! Their skilful phrasing, their sensitivity to the Schubert intimacies, their natural choice of tempi, their obvious dexterities in the musical details with out loosing any sense of spontaneity (which I suppose comes from the fact that they play concerts and record from memory, i.e. without sheet music in front of them)

The feel of this recording is as it was a live recording by Schubert in two of his most blissful chamber music works. The interpretation of the slow movements is better than any recording I can remember. And their frisky playing in the concluding movements of both trios is uplifting.
