means of amplification. ie, microphone system).

General sound estetics
sound – the music of the trio needs low level sound volumes, warm and natural sounds
dynamics - the musicians play using a large dynamic range, which they control themselves on stage. Please do not try to balance or control the dynamics using the P.A. during the performance and do not use any aggressive compressors or gates !
reverb - if the room is very dry, a slight reverb may be used on the piano and on the drums if necessary, this should only be to give a little more space to the sound.
