5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal - one of the best trios, 6 Jun 2009

I have several recordings of Beethoven's Archduke and Ghost trios. This recording by the Beaux Arts Trio cannot be contested as the best recording of those that I have heard. They play effusively, yet are reserved when the music demands it. Their touch is light, yet potent. Pressler's piano is superb, and Cohen and Greenhouse's strings complement the piano so considerately that you feel you are aurally witnessing the most intimate of conversations, which then grow, burst out and enrapture you.

If you are a novice to classical music then this CD makes beautiful listening and a good introduction to Beethoven's chamber music.

This review is from: Beethoven: Piano Trios - "Archduke" & "Ghost" (Virtuoso series) (Audio CD)
This is a wonderful performance by the Beaux Arts of one of the master's really great and moving trios. A light and loving interpretation. I heard it played on the radio and was so glad it was available. It arrived quickly. Maglet.

5.0 out of 5 stars the best I have heard, 18 Jun 2014

This review is from: Beethoven: Piano Trios - "Archduke" & "Ghost" (Virtuoso series) (Audio CD)
I was particularly looking for the Ghost and I spent ages listening to snippets from all available recordings before deciding that this was the most mellifluous - I have not been disappointed. The three pieces harmonise well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beaux Arts Trio, enough said, 11 Sep 2013

This review is from: Beethoven: Piano Trios - "Archduke" & "Ghost" (Virtuoso series) (Audio CD)
***** for the musical performance.
One star removed for Decca's sloppy production.

My musical knowledge is inadequate for the purposes of conveying to readers why the Beaux Arts Trio versions
are superior, but my auditory equipment can detect it.

However the CD I received has a fault, the tracks it contains are as per the sleeve and Amazon's contents list. The track descriptions stored on the CD are wrong. The first thing I do with any new CD is to copy it twice, one for the Hi-Fi and one for the car CD player. When played the equipment advises me that it is playing a different trio/movement to that actually being reproduced, a minor irritation, but still an irritation.

Another reviewer referred to the violinist as Isidore Cohen, on the sleeve I have the violinist is Daniel Guilet.
