    "The performance of the Icicle Creek Piano Trio comes a close to being 'definitive' as any I expect to hear in my lifetime." - Fanfare Magazine 

    "They catch all the subtle, shimmering shades.....free of mannerisms." - The Strad

The Icicle Creek Piano Trio has collaborated with such noted artists as Ian Swensen, Nathaniel Rosen, Karen Dreyfus, Anthony Elliott, Steven Doane, and the Avalon String Quartet.

2009/2010 season highlights include an invitation to perform Beethoven’s Triple Concerto with the St. Petersburg Chamber Orchestra in Russia in March 2010. The Icicle Creek Piano Trio is also planning to record a second CD to follow up the brilliant success of their debut CD of Schubert and Ravel Piano Trios, released in 2008 on the Con Brio label.
