Review by Robin Elliott

Trio Fibonacci is internationally recognized for breadth of repertoire and brilliance of presentation. From the works of Haydn to collaborations with over forty living composers on four continents, the Trio explores every aspect of the piano trio oeuvre. Besides regular appearances across North America, concert tours to Europe, South America, South Africa, and the Far East, including TV and radio broadcasts, have established Trio Fibonacci as a significant force in the development of the medium.
