‘they almost had me in tears…a deeply moving performance’

William Lyne (Artistic Director of Wigmore Hall 1966-2002)

‘Nothing less than you’d expect from the Benauds…simply the best of its kind in Australia: 5 stars out of 5’

Arts Hub

‘The Australian Benaud Trio offer superb performances on their debut disc.’

Gramophone (UK)

‘There is plenty of competition these days in the chamber music field, but the Benaud Trio is an exceptionally fine ensemble; one can only hope that audiences realise this and flock to their performances…in short, it was a splendid, inspiring performance’

Stephen Whittington, The Advertiser

‘Make this a stop on your quest to the perfect Dumky: this could well be the best version I've heard.’

MusicWeb International (UK)

‘With Australian cricket’s avuncular figurehead as their inspiration, the Benaud Trio have taken on more elevated characteristics: steadiness under pressure, a latent flair that abruptly blazes into life, unfailing respect for the work and an unaffected courtesy in their presentation.’

Clive O’Connell – The Age

‘The Benaud Trio have developed a fantastic savoir fair with works of non-classical influence. Some classical musicians pay only a stilted homage to anything jazz or pop-infused, but Benaud launch wholeheartedly into these styles with the temperament that they deserve. They also understand that not all music is deadly serious.’

Anna McAlister - Herald Sun

‘...spunk and refreshing musicianship...a tightly unified musical presence that throbs with vitality and sparkles with clarity.’
