Saxophone, Bassoon, and Piano is an unusual combination that creates an exciting and vibrant sound. The works on this CD represent some of the finest writing for this combination, and the performers are three of the best practitioners of their art.
Kenneth Tse "plays with
seductive tonal beauty" (American Record Guide) and is "a
brilliant saxophonist...worthy of any stage in the world." (Eugene Rousseau). Benjamin
"playing is unfailingly sonorous, expressive and alert." (Gramophone) Alan Huckleberry has "technical
mastery and interpretive panache." (Fanfare)
The three musicians are on the faculty
"Both Kenneth Tse and Benjamin Coelho play with warm, full tone and with enviable agility. Alan Huckleberry ably accompanies them, and then some, because this music rarely relegates him to the back seat. His alert playing is a fine foil for his partners and for the music too." International Record Review, October 2006
"The Pas de Trois CD is living proof of just how exciting the saxophone can be in a chamber ensemble. ... To sum up this trio's performance would be to say they are simply superb. This trio of three virtuoso musicians has created a completely exhilarating musical experience on this CD. This is a CD that you don't want to miss. Bravo!" Saxophone Journal, Nov/Dec 2006
"These performances are as good as they can be. The three of them play with impeccable musicianship, exhilarating technique, and panache; and they deliver nothing short of the best. Not only is it a delight to hear them play, but this music is a pleasure to hear." American Record Guide, Nov/Dec 2006
"While the instrumentation of this trio may seem unusual, the timbres blend beautifully and create interesting counterpoint throughout this wonderful recording." The Instrumentalist Magazine, August 2006
