Jacques Israelievitch's soloing was like sparks from the depths of a soul. At first they sounded like laments, but really, his little melodies spoke of trembling before the infinite. (Globe and Mail)
Jacques Israelievitch and his trio perform the brilliant Triple Concerto of Beethoven. OP and Maestro Marco Parisotto tackle one of the symphonic war-horses of the early Romantic period with Schubert's "Great". Schumann is reported to have said he thought it to be the greatest instrumental work since the death of Beethoven!
