“Pierre Bensaid demonstrates a gift for shaping melody with an unfailing, though varied, sweetness of tone.” The Strad magazine

“Crisp, transparent readings and impressively intense!” The Times

”Masterly performance with urgent spontaneity and intensity that recalls the heyday of the Barenboim-Zukerman-Du Pré trio.  Most importantly, violinist Pierre Bensaid interweaves with the potentially dominating piano part with such passion and sensitivity that Tchaikovsky orchestral writing emerges like real chamber music. A triumph!” The Strad magazine
