'The Schubert B flat trio is a glorious work and the Isimsiz did justice to it…. the slow movement achingly beautiful.'
www.stringsattached.com, Brighton Dome, February 2014
'The trio (Isimsiz means “without a name” in Turkish) performed the Haydn with expressive delicacy. But the Beethoven was immediately full of tension, as if musical elastic bands connected the players. The C Minor came out sounding utterly radical and unexpected. The musicians also brought out the best in Schubert’s substantial take on the piano trio, giving it vibrancy and colour, with a beautifully played slow movement.'
The Argus, Brighton Dome, February 2014
