“The Smetana Trio's performances, as captured in Supraphon's warm recording, are totally compelling. It's no mean feat that the players not only negotiate the ebb and flow of the musical argument in each work with tremendous flexibility of nuance, but that their imaginative approach to balance and texturing ensures that the listener is completely involved in the drama from first bar to last.”
