The Amerigo Trio
"Dicterow's sweet, large, tightly focused tone gave the ensemble a rock-solid leading voice. But cellist Inbal Segev matched him with her thrillingly projected, vibrato-rich playing (not to mention a beautifully judged range of color and dynamics), while Karen Dreyfus's lean and throaty viola sound provided piquant contrast. It was in its finely woven blend of timbres and rapport, though, that the trio most deeply satisfied."
The Washington Post
"personality, purpose and captivating energy"
The Strad
"virtuoso performance . . . an extraordinary interchange of musical thought"
Maine Sunday Telegram
"Segev's playing is fluid and bold, Dreyfus is elegant and expressive, and Dicterow is fantastic."
Berkshire Arts Almanac
"In the tannery’s close acoustics, the Amerigo Trio (named for explorer Amerigo Vespucci) came across as a powerhouse, yet flexible in its approach. The Dohnanyi serenade, modeled on Brahms’ serenades for orchestra, enjoyed both passion and drollery. A high point was the generous lyricism of the fourth- movement variations. In Brahms’ wild Gypsy finale, the players had enough energy in reserve to make the faster-and-faster ending practically fly off the stage."
