    Review by Peter Burwasser

    "Hobson is using the tools of his choice to put together expressive, superbly crafted music. The Trio is bold and ambitious. It often sounds much larger than just three instruments, and yet a clarity of structure is apparent at all times."

    Review by Robert Kirzinger

    "From the early Trio 1966 to the latest piece on this disc, Trio, Hobson's style recalls the Romantic era. Though his pitch and rhythmic language grows out of Schoenberg and Sessions, the shapes of the larger phrases and the rubato applied in these performances link Hobson to the 19th century. . . These are well-written pieces, particularly the Cantilena Infinita."
