Press Quotes

Trickey has curated a wonderfully ‘eclectic and unusual’ album… Trickey’s Telemann is authoritative and stylish, and her Prokofiev is ebullient… this idiomatic work [Wallen: ‘Bertha’] is a welcome addition to the repertoire… (PERFORMANCE: ٭٭٭٭٭ / RECORDING: ٭٭٭٭٭ BBC Music Magazine)

Overall, this is a fascinating survey of varied solo violin repertoire, and speaks of intense commitment and a desire to communicate, as well as clear virtuosic command from Trickey.” (Classical Notes)

“…elegant account of Prokofiev’s late solo sonata and some simply eloquent Telemann” (Album Weekly Pick, The Guardian)
