“The Eaken Trio gave an exciting yet friendly performance [at Carnegie Hall], one that invited the listener into their intimate world of music making.” —Strings Magazine
“…the music was often irresistible…with each sweep of the bow and the pianist’s sparkling passagework and nuance… stylistically they were as one… timbrally ravishing.” —The Philadelphia Inquirer
