“In this, the 250th anniversary of Ludwig van Beethoven’s birthday, Yarlung Records offers a recording worthy of the master, a delectation from the Janaki String Trio that was originally recorded in 2006 in Zipper Hall. The sonics are as inviting as the playing.” — Music = 10/11; Sound = 10/11 — Ty Webb, AnalogPlanet.com. Read the whole review here.
“…reminiscent of RCA Living Stereo in its golden age, or Mercury Records at its height. Yarlung’s sound is liquid and transparent, just as if you were sitting in the concert halls with superb acoustics, where these recordings are made.” — Mori Shima, Stereo Sound, Japan
The three members of the Janaki Trio — violinist Serena McKinney, violist Katie Kadarauch and cellist Arnold Choi — found common cause while students at the Colburn Music School in Los Angeles, and the quality of their performances there won first recognition in the 2005 International Coleman Foundation Award. Only a year later the Trio had moved skyward, with New York’s much-coveted Concert Artists Guild Award.
“Now, as inevitable and delightful consequence, they are ready with the first recorded evidence of their high skills — and also, in the breadth of this program, of their awareness of the broad scope of the musical world they are now out to conquer.” — Alan Rich
