5.0 out of 5 stars In a class of its own 4 Nov 2010
By Scriabinmahler TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Beaux Arts Trio plays Schumann's piano quartet and quintet with rapt emotional involvement and aristocratic poise. Menahem Pressler's piano playing is exquisitely sensitive and wonderfully poetic, beautifully balanced with the warmly expressive strings. The heart breakingly beautiful slow movement of Piano Quartet, one of Schumann's most inspired lyrical compositions, is presented with autumnal glow and wistful sweetness. Their performance of Piano Quintet is equally outstanding, masterfully capturing the mysterious melancholy of the slow movement and the architectural beauty of the outer movements. The strength of their performances is the ability to bring out the unique poetic romanticism of Schumann's music without being overly sentimental, letting the music speak for itself. Most recommendable alongside the famous CBS recording of the same chamber works, played by Glenn Gould/Julliard Qt. In the three Trios, you can find hidden gems of Schumann's chamber music compositions, which deserve more performances.

5.0 out of 5 stars marvellous music in aristocratic performances 28 Feb 2009
By Mr. Ian A. Macfarlane TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this very reasonably priced set mainly for the Quartet, which I wanted to get to know. It's a lovely piece with a melting slow movement - Schumann at his most lyrical - though not, I think, quite the equal of the astonishing Quintet, written at about the same time. The revelation were the three trios, the first two of which are quite wonderful (the third does not quite reach that level). What you can be sure of, too, is the consistently fine quality of the performances. The Beaux Arts Trio are too well known and too highly regarded for any special pleading from me. Let is just be said that their very high standards of musicality are consistently met here, with, as always, the wonderful playing of the pianist, Menahem Pressler, at the core of what they do. The recordings are clean, immediate. well balanced and faithful. You simply can't go wrong here - it's a very fine set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Radiant and faithful 12 Sep 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A marvellous double cd set here, with much to savour. The performances are warm and precise. It would be hard to hear them bettered. The highlights are the quintet, quartet and F major trio. The third movement of this trio contains Schumann's most sublime and characteristic music. Clara Schumann said she was "passionately fond of this piece". Everything most heartfelt, nostalgic and dreamlike about Schumann is here in this movement. Then there is the fabulous quintet. At all times the musicianship is contained, sensitive, considered and passionate, when need be. It is wrong to single out works on this cd; they all feature beautiful music. I am especially attached to the Dminor trio. The recordings are from the 1970s but they as 'fresh as can be' digitally remastered.

5.0 out of 5 stars Schumann's Piano Quintet. 31 Dec 2010
Format:Audio CD
I first heard this at Durham University played by I Musici quintet. It was the most beautiful music I had ever listened to, especially the Notturno. I bought the c.d.and play it often, particularly if I am feeling a bit stressed out. What a bargain that was!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunningly good 30 Aug 2010
By Paul
Format:Audio CD
This is beautiful, melodious music, played with verve, enthusiasm and intelligence. My only niggle (and it's not much of one) is that Piano Trio no 1 is split over two CDs - it limits the scope to lie back and wallow. Apart from that - what's not to like?
