According to New York Concert Review Amael Trio did an excellent job, they represented Slovenia with honor: Maestoso Lugubre‚ by Slovenian composer Lucijan Marija Skerjanc ‚ a somber lyricism pervaded, deepened by each player.

The synchronization was marvelous, particularly in the string doublings. All three blended in a way that was rich and warm, but also translucent, like the sonic equivalent of amber.

Amael Trio brought unity and vigor to both old and new…The synchronization was marvelous, particularly in the string doublings. All three blended in a way that was rich and warm, but also translucent, like the sonic equivalent of amber.

The performance (Five short pieces by Slovenian composer Milko Lazar) was one of extreme precision, and it would be hard to imagine it being played more convincingly than it was by this tightly knit ensemble‚ it was a fulfilling musical evening, and this is a superb ensemble.
