Phenomenal - one of the best trios
on 6 June 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.
