During concert appearances under the name of Musica Viva Trio, the group has been praised for "high musicianship," "sparkling and polished performance,"
and each player was "found to be a virtuoso in his own right."...The trio plays beautifully, and gives us recordings of unusual chamber music -
von Weber (know mostly by opera buffs, clarinet players, and the arranger of Benny Goodman's "Let's Dance") - wrote only three chamber works,
and Dussek's work (known to practically nobody) is recorded here for the first time. It is lovely music, of a nearly - forgotten - by - some
era, but a pleasure to play or to hear.
