His trio is venerated as the epitome of thrilling interplay and dynamic spontaneity with The Wall Street Journal calling it “one of the major ensembles of our time. The Boston Globe concludes called Hersch, “a pristine pianist with a poet’s soul — a pair of qualities that combine to especially dazzling effect ...truly transcendent.”
