"The Aquinas Trio, formed in 2009, has quickly become one of England’s leading ensembles, and this concert justified why throughout. Their overall fluidity and confidence for the subtleties...exquisite virtuosity from all the players, with beautiful tone and flawless unity and movement... This sold out concert hall was in awe, ecstatic with joy at the final cadence."
Musical Opinion Jan 16
'Having been enthusiastically reviewed by MusicWeb International, The Strad and Gramophone magazine, the trio had great expectations to fill. Performing Mendelssohn’s Trio No. 2 in C minor and the Trio No. 1 in F major by Saint-Saens, the Aquinas Trio did not disappoint....It is simply wonderful that three musicians as fine as Rogers, Jenkinson and Cousin, have come together to perform and record this superb music. To spread my enthusiasm for piano trios, I recommend the following ensembles: Gryphon Trio, Florestan Trio, Suk Trio, Gould Trio, and Beaux Arts Trio. To this list I must now add the Aquinas Piano Trio.'

"Geniality and impeccable craftsmanship go hand in hand when it comes to Saint-Saëns's piano trios. This is music to enjoy, as the Aquinas Piano Trio clearly do in playing it...the Aquinas Trio are spot-on in interpretative instinct."
