"One the best chamber ensembles of its generation..."
"What a closure for the festival “Autour d’un Piano!
“[The Zodiac Trio] lead the public in a program dedicated to 20th century music, a task in which the trio succeeded with a rare talent. The musicians were awarded with an overwhelming ovation by the audience which included serious music lovers who did not hesitate in marking this night as extraordinary. All in all, the night carried a feeling of intense enthusiasm... With a contagious enjoyment of music, the Zodiac Trio displayed an impeccable technique. Don’t forget their name; you will hear of them again, this is certain."
“...All excellent, talented and committed... Pianist Riko Higuma played [Franz Liszt’s Tarantella from “Venizia e Napoli”] brilliantly and was a sensitive partner in the ensembles... Clarinetist Kliment Krylovskiy played with easy facility, a vibrant, variable tone, and radiated lots of expressiveness and exuberance. Violinist Vanessa Mollard displayed a fine technique and a lovely tone... The performances were serious and conscientious as well as involved and spontaneous. Throughout, the musicians projected infectious enjoyment of the music and their collaboration, and a truly remarkable ability to feel at home in national idioms surely far removed from their own background and experience. The audience responded with unbridled enthusiasm.”
