"Incredible ensemble, passionate playing, articulate and imaginative ideas and a wide palette of colors"
— The Strad

The Lysander Piano Trio has been praised by The Strad for its “incredible ensemble, passionate playing, articulate and imaginative ideas and wide palette of colors” and by The Washington Post for “an uncommon degree of heart-on-the-sleeve emotional frankness” and “vivid engagement carried by soaring, ripely Romantic playing.”

Beyond these qualities, the group has developed a reputation for exciting programming, combining fresh interpretations of beloved master works from the canon with a passion for new music and discovering hidden gems of the repertoire. The Trio’s debut recording After a Dream (CAG Records) was acclaimed by The New York Times for its “polished and spirited interpretations.” Its most recent album, Mirrors, featuring world-premiere recordings of six works the ensemble has commissioned or premiered, was released in 2021 by First Hand Records.

The Lysander Trio takes its name from the character in Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
