I truly enjoy the interwound arrangements of the many accordion famous selections; chosen for each special occasion.

  • "Do you know how good you have to be to make it look THAT easy????" (July, 1999)
  • "It has been my pleasure to hear a variety of chamber groups from all over the world for many years, and I am confident The "K" Trio ranks among the best. The three accordionists play with musicianship rarely displayed by musicians of any kind. They also convey a new image of their instrument to everyone fortunate enough to hear them. There are no stars in this group; each person is an artist performer with technique to spare. Their large concert repertoire is comprehensive and exciting. It will appeal to audiences of all kinds. The charm and ease with which they communicate enhance all of their performances. I hope many more people have the opportunity to enjoy their music making in the near future."

Tania Lukic-Marx, CD reviewer, Accordions Worldwide Website - January 28, 2000

  • "This trio comes as a real refreshment. Consisting of two accordions and a bass accordion, this ensemble performs light style music, light classical as well as popular style. Technically competent, tonally clear and crisp, their performance is spirited, emotional and involving. As an ensemble, they achieved great balance and togetherness which is a clear sign of high professional ability. Their repertoire is very various and entertaining. My favorite track would be "Casey Jones" where the train effect is absolutely superb, and I cannot fault it from beginning to end."
