"…This is a fantastic release, with performances at or near the top of the list. The sound is warm and rich, guaranteed to take the edge off the chilliest disposition. What jumps out at you from the speakers is a tone that is almost palpable in its feeling. The performances are faultless, extraordinarily attuned to the romantic idiom and to Brahms’s personal permutations of it. I simply can’t think of any other recording, aside from the one mentioned, that I would prefer to this one for the sonatas or the trio.
… Do search out this recording – it is outstanding."
