I don't think any other recording of the Op.8 trio matches this one for sheer exuberance and youthful vigour.
There is a burning fierceness to the romantic sweep of the opening movement that feels so right when I imagine a young, passionate Brahms. For me this is the most joyous and uplifting performance of this inspired music and I urge you to buy this disc for this alone.
If you require a complete set of all three trios then I would recommend the Trio Wanderer on Harmonia Mundi.
But add this one for the B major and you will not regret it!

I bought this disc after hearing it on the radio, having been impressed by by both the quality of the recording and of the playing. My views on chamber music tend to be somewhat mixed and previously Brahms had not registered for me as being worthy of serious consideration. How wrong I was!.

This CD has created a seismic shift in my attitude to this type of chamber work. The music is quite delightful whether used as pleasing background music or the subject of studied concentration. It is sunny without being superficial or shallow; a winning combination.

The Best 31 Mar 2007
By Lloyd M. Shupp - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
These Brahms masterpieces come alive under the hands of these performers. They have discovered the key to the trios' musical mysteries. Particularly compelling is the performance of the pianist, Maria Joao Pires. Full of interpretive detail that illuminates Brahm's style in a wonderful way, this CD is at the top of my list of favorite Brahms recordings.

If you want Brahms - thick and rich, this is for you. 11 May 2012

Best recording I have in terms of overall sound, tone, intonation and ensemble playing. Dumay has a clarity to is tone that is unmatchable. And Wang plays the introduction to the first movement of the B major perfectly.
Right From the Start, a Great Composer!! 1 April 2014
By TONY L. ENGLETON C.N.M.T. - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
04-01-2014 In the very beginning, Johannes Brahms exhibited greatness in his very first attempts at com posaing, as this pai of PianoTrios cl;early demonstarte. Written in 1853-54, when he was but 20-21 years old, the composer conmand Haitinkmposed a sublime B Major Trio for Piano, Violin and Cello and it is played expertly here by Joao Pires, Augustin Dumay and Jian Wang for DGG. It was recorded in a studio in Berlin inthe month of April of 1995, and along with trhis early work, we also get the 2nd Piano Trio, ther one in C-Major, op. 87 from 1880-82. Then, Brahms was nearing aghe 50. He met the SCHUMANNS IN AND AFTER ONLY A FEW YEARS OF LIVING WITH THIS FINE AND DEDICATED COUPLE, THE COMPOSER ROBERT WAS INSTITUTIONALIZED IN AN ASSYLUM, AND DIED SHORTLY THEREAFTER. I DO NOT KNOW THE CASUE OF DEATH, BUT HIS WIDOW CLARA AND THE MUCH YOUNGER HANNNES, CARRIED ON A LIFELONG LETTER CORRESpondence, which shows much insight into the composer's thought process. Basically, he bounced his ideas and drafts off Clara, an accomplished pianist in her own right, and since the untimely death of her beloved spouse, a champion of his music. I am not a big Schumann fan, as I see most of his music as not very inmaginative, structured or highly refined. But, I could be very wrong and I continue to try to learn and appreciate his works, particularly for the solo keyboard. But, for Brahms, I have the greatest of affectiona and respect.
One warm and balm y evening in the early to mid 90's, wehile we werre living in San Jose, I drove to the Bay Area Tower records store and bought a pair of handfulls of Brahms's chamber music CD's. I became listening and studying them, and I was simply amazed at how good they were, even his early stuff. I already knew his Symphonic pieces and adored the Concerti, notablery his ZViolin Concerto in D, THE greatest of ALL Violin Concertos, but his Chamber music was still a mystery to me. Not for long, As I got hooked that night. Evber since, I have collected and learned new works, but I have a lot of work to do in the String Quartets. This trio was an easy assignmernt to give myself.
The First Piano Trio has an opening movement of wonderful simplicity and gentle demeanor. It isa p[l;ayed hee by these three soloists with affection, respect and much virtuosity. Running a leisurely 1517, the Pires-Dumay_wang threesome (PDW) offer us very good ensemble playing with a comfortable and relaxed tempo, aLLOWING EVERY TINY NUANCE IN THE MUSIC TO RECEIVE IT'S FULL VOIKCE. WHY, IT'S ALMOST AS IF THESE THREE FOLKS WERE "SINGING" THEIR ROLES.

smooth and cohesive Brahms for three 8 Nov 2013
By NUC MED TECH - Published on
Format: Audio CD
11-10-2013 This is a cd with twoof the pianoi trios by Brahms from his wonderful chamber music library which first made him a star in Germany,long before he became a symphonist or a great choral composer witth his german Requiem of 1865. The composer was 43 shenhis first symphony premiered,an age when most other composers are lready well into their symphonic cataloge. His friends and many admireers were urging Johannes rto write a symphony, but he ws not ready unti the early 1870's. The symphonies, when they did come all turned out to be masterpiecesanhd are, tothis day, cornerstones in the standard epetorierdly, Oddly, brahms onlywroe 3 pianosomnati and they ae ll three within his op.1 toop.5His two viola (clarinetsonati )but his quartewt, quintets and trios were all amongst his mature ceations,written in a span from to .
The first trio,the op.8 is inte key of BMajor and, in this recording, we heaar thelarefinal version of thie trio from 1889. I don't believebrahmsevised much of his work,this is the only one I know was revised. I wouldlike to find and buy the original work from his twenties and I'm guessing thee wan't much reason to edit this trio, other than tomakeiteven more.The opening Allegro on brio is a beautiful flowing melody with each of he instruments making significant contributions to the oveall sonoritythr 2nd movement is a short scherzo of only6:36 andit is full of skipping, sunny and pleaent musicalrhythms, the strings and the pianotakig turns leading the way to the conclusion.The delicae and lovely adagiolast for 9:13 and we can savor everynote from this trio ofexcellent players
