⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Telegraph Review for The London Bridge Trio’s “The Leipzig Circle”!
“For a few years in the 1840s, the Schumanns and Mendelssohns crossed paths in Leipzig. Both lived in the city only a short walk from each other. it’s easy to imagine them playing their new pieces to each other after dinner, discussing works-in-progress, criticising a first draft. That feeling of a shared musical culture comes over strongly on this Cd, where the pieces have a definite family likeness. … The performers do the works proud. They catch the storminess of the first movement of Fanny Mendelssohn’s Trio… Lightness of touch and a tender intimacy of feeling are the keynotes of this CD, which is…a total delight”—Ivan Hewett, The Telegraph
