"Ms. Casarrubios joined the pianist Michael James Smith and the violinist Kobi Malkin for a terrific performance of Ravel's Piano Trio in A minor. They aptly traversed the palette of emotions from languid introspection to fevered intensity with gorgeous tone and an edge-of-seat intensity that ended the concert on an exciting note."

International Record Review, Raymond S. Tuttle - February 2015
"This is a fascinating CD, uncorrupted by hipness or gimmickry... Although this is their debut CD, and their the maturity of the music-making demonstrates how far [Trio Appassionata] have come in six years and their unanimous approach to the repertoire...The Trio plays the music with complete dedication andassurance. It says something about a programme’s ambitiousness when the least ‘difficult’ item on it is by Charles Ives… What were his intentions? The movement’s title [This Scherzo is a Joke] might be a clue, but of course scherzo in Italian means ‘joke’ and even if the music itself is a joke, it’s a joke that takes itself seriously. That is particularly true for Trio Appassionata, whose performance steers well clear of parody, veering instead in the direction of frightening psychedelia. Ives on LSD, anyone? ... Trio Appassionata is at once weirder and more controlled than the Beaux Arts Trio, the usual standard in this work. The booklet notes are scholarly in their detail and the engineering is almost stark in its clarity. The music-making...is as impressive and dangerous as a granite cliff."

"In her performance of the Concerto No. 1 in C Major for cello and orchestra by J. Haydn, Andrea Casarrubios proves beyond debate that she has managed to climb a great place in the rough roads of musical interpretations. Embraced by the OCIM orchestra under the watchful eye of Andrew Watkinson, Andrea shows the composer's momentum with a delicious version, highlighting its notes like inspiring perls. Andrea Casarrubios is a synthesis of shared expressiveness: she provides neatness, character, and a perfect technique, along with a balanced form with vivid expression.
These values would be confirmed with the subsequent intervention of the cellist, with her version of "Prayer" by composer E. Bloch. This piece of authentic formal beauty, finds its ideal performer in Andrea Casarrubios. Her elegance, the great expressive power with which she shines, and the displayed virtuosity, offer, as a result, a faithful and authentic translation of the piece, where the expressive power blossoms from the transparency of the voice, in its sumptuous resonance, in the rich timbre, in the evolution and the development of the main discourse.
