"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."

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

is absolutely superb, and I cannot fault it from beginning to

entire CD is impeccable! First of all, you have achieved great
variety in the selections chosen. All of your interpretations
