In a recent review, the New York Times praised the trio for its "elegant rendition" of Piazzolla's Tangos and has received positive media attention and reviews, including being called "virtuosos of classical and contemporary chamber music" in one profile for Russian television.

The Poulenc Trio's program on Jan. 12 will include the Trio Sonata in F-major by George Friedrich Handel, Trio for Oboe, Basson and Piano by Jean Francaix, Fantaisie Concertante on themes from l'Italiana in Algeri by Gioacchino Rossini and a piece written for the Poulenc Trio, Three Études by Tom Benjamin. The Poulenc Trio will conclude the evening with Suite from The Threepenny Opera by Kurt Weill including The Ballad of Mack the Knife.
