The English Piano Trio plays with admirable directness and expressive generosity and perform with vitality and adroit musicianship
Jonathan Woolf – MusicWeb International  2023

The English Piano Trio play with the ease of the established and accomplished group they are.
Boston Concert Club, October 2019

How they played! The communication and understanding between all of the players was outstanding and the balance between the virtuoso piano part and the strings was superb.
Amersham Concert Club (Words and Music programme : ‘Mozart: Man and Music ‘ with guests Susie Meszaros – viola, and Roger Ringrose – narrator), November 2019 

The English Piano Trio is one of the best established British Trios. They play so completely as one that you simply relax into the music. These performers blend in with each other but project too, so that though each other takes up their part in the texture they are never afraid to show individual timbre and exposed solo lines, which is naturally what you would hope for. Consummate music-making. Definitive performances.
Simon Jenner, November 2018

The English Piano Trio bring these works to life…the silky, delicate wending of the final allegro showed all three in their element, achieving a finely crafted ensemble.
The Strad

Three robustly equal parts spar and sing.

The Piano Trio is among the most deeply felt music that Arnold composed, and the EPT does it full justice.
BBC Music Magazine

The instrumentalists play with capacity and boldness…all is well balanced as Haydn would have wished.
Luister Magazine, Belgium

The EPT played with impressive synchrony and balance, always alert and stylish. The performance brought much pleasure. Haydn would have been well pleased…his presence was spiritually felt.
The Strad

The EPT was a real delight. The players showed how well attuned they were to each other. The violin and cello together drew deeply felt melodic lines which were caressed by the pianist’s delicate touch.
Mainzer Rheinzeitung

The EPT has found the key to good chamber music playing…the Haydn trio was given a sparkling reading…the playful allegro saw all three obviously enjoying themselves.
The Strad

Presented at a well filled Purcell Room, the EPT was attractively cohesive and well balanced… the cello tone when joined with the silvery violin offered a colourful contrast to the piano’s beautifully shaded filigree…the fizzing finale crowned the evening.
Musical Opinion

The English Piano Trio, guests of the Mozart Society, demonstrated the art of musical conversation…they made no secret of their joy of playing, a joy which communicated itself to the public and which proclaimed the true musical ‘homeland’ of the interpreters.
Wiesbaden Kurier

The English Piano Trio, always giving of their best, was able to show a transparent achievement. There were intensely sung dialogues between the cello and violin…the pianist fulfilled his part beautifully.
