Sorry, but I can't agree with the other review of these classic recordings of Brahms' piano quartets. Brahms often needs a more red-blooded approach than is sometimes heard. The Beaux Arts Trio with Walter Trampler and Menahem Pressler provide this but also perform with all the sensitivity, verve, and above all musicality, which so strongly characterise Brahms' chamber music. The beautiful slow movements contain all the necessary lyricism without being bland, while faster movements such as the fiery Hungarian gypsy rondo finale of Quartet no.1 are full of the excitement one would hope for, yet with no loss of control.

These recordings have long remained in the catalogue and for good reason (3-stars in the Penguin Guide). For many musicians (including myself) they would be first choice for the complete set. If one has to pick and choose, then perhaps for added nobility (and panache in the rondo finale of no.1), Artur Rubinstein's recording with members of the Guaneri Quartet on RCA would be first choice - though sadly no.2 is not included in that set.

I recently bought this CD from Amazon and am sorry to say that I found it almost impossible to listen to. My reason for buying it was having heard the Tamas Vasari version of the piano quartet no 1 on radio 3 but could not find an available version to buy (at a price I could afford). The performance by the Beaux Arts Trio is rushed and even at times discordant - 'hurry' music of the worst sort. The beautiful, lyrical Rondo alla Zingarese (last movement of the Piano Quartet in G) was ruined. Sorry to be so negative but I cannot in all conscience recommend this recording to anyone. If anyone wants a recording of Brhams Piano quartets try out another recording first.
