Pablo Held and his fellow musicians present piano trio music that leaves a lasting impression on the audience instead of going for short-dated effects. Despite his young age � when recording his debut album in 2008 he was only 21 years old � Held is already surprisingly confident in his style. His music has a mysterious and introverted quality, but at the same time manages to engage the listener with great tension without being withdrawn. The nearly instinctive sureness in playing with Robert Landfermann and Jonas Burgwinkel only serves to enhance this effect.
