This is a most beautiful, personal interpretation of these beautiful works. It perfectly captures the passion, lyricism and introspection of these sonatas with true musicality. I still own this recording on LP, a wonderful Decca 1960s release, and have played it countless times. Each playing seems to yield new joys - true music making. A masterpiece.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This well recorded disc from 1967 contains the first full set of the three Brahms violin sonatas and, as such, Decca threw down the gauntlet to anyone following on. Their faith in this set of recordings has proved to be well founded as, even today over 40 years later, this disc is still considered a reference set of performances and the recording has achieved a new lease of life in its latest re-mastering.

Recordings made on analogue tape simply had a wider signal range than that possible on the early CDs which explains why so many collectors with high end LP players were disappointed by the lack of range and realism of the new CD medium. It is only with this latest set of remastering that modern listeners are able to experience the sounds previously enjoyed by those LP enthusiasts. Just how much was missing on those early CDs can readily be heard on this new generation of discs, including this one. There is greater dynamic range, frequency range, depth of field and general sense of 'presence.'

The performances themselves are superb, taking us through the earlier and more serene first two sonatas to the more dramatic and larger scaled third sonata in one creative overview. Suk's violin tone is not large or heavy such as can be found in many Russian players, not does it have the steely edge found in some American players. Instead it is smaller, precisely focussed, quite a sweet sound but with a distinct cutting edge. This is ideally suited to his chamber music by Brahms and Katchen proves to be a most sympathetic partner. It was Decca's idea to partner them together, but this was so successful that the pair went on to form the very successful Suk trio with Janos Starker on cello.

Incredible performances...otherworldly...takes you to a place where you will want to visit often...Brahms is a need that has to be unraveled...dealt with, and these performers allow you do that...the autumn winds permeate this late music...

Although somewhat dated in sound quality terms, this is a fine set of performances - benchmark against which all others should be assessed.
