Enthusiastic critics for their debut Compact Disc “FRANZ LISZT Chamber Music for Violin, Cello, Piano” (2016, MAP Classics): “a careful interpretation of the young and talented TrioDMITRIJ” (Amadeus) “the members of TrioDMITRIJ are involved with passion in the not easy decipherment of all these pieces” (ClassicVOICE) “convincing the interpretation of TrioDMITRIJ, able to give dignity and full autonomy to all these transcriptions” (Audiophile Sound).
