Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
These recordings are wonderful. The music is beautifully played with such delicacy, grace, and power one can get completely lost in Beethoven's sound world. It is also a very good value set.
As regards the Archduke, the piano is wonderfully sonorous with a rich pleasing tone and on my equipment the cello and violin are both clearly audible but not to the front of the sound. I find the experience most pleasing. I have other recordings where the cello and violin are to the fore and would buy this set for the Archduke.

Well played and recorded. I think the opus 1 trios fare best and are works of some consequence which I had not previously heard. Recording quality is excellent but unfortunately I had a real problem with the Archduke which is the key piece for me. The balance of the instruments is difficult to accept but probably bearable in the other pieces. Piano dominates violin and cello. Third movement is good- one of the best- but elsewhere one wonders why violinist and cellist put up with this. In the final movement the violin's tripping contribution two thirds of the way through is pathetically quiet and has little effect. In addition to the volume issue the piano is played in a fairly robust way (though well ) rather than the "tinkling " of a Kempff. Having already the Stern/Rose/Istomin version with its poorish sound quality ( although a good performance )and numerous little clicks ( at least on my copy ) and the Kempff/ Fournier/Szering this Beaux Arts version is the best in sound but worst in instrument balance. The Kempff etc. version is virtually perfect interpretatively but the negative here is ? Szering's irritating respiratory intakes in the third movement. Fournier's cello tone is wonderful and apart from his respiratory contribution Szering is also fine. Kempff as usual has a simple and tasteful way with this as most of his records. I shall probably try the Florestan's at some point. I also liked the Kempff "Ghost" a lot and the Stern "Ghost" is likewise good with better sound than the Archduke. Both preferable to this Beaux Arts one.

These recordings have been well cleaned up, even if unavoidably at the expense of the highest frequencies. The sound recording level, though, is a little on the low side. The overall effect is impressive for recordings from the 1920s.

However, prospective purchasers may be in for a shock. This style of playing has now completely disappeared: nobody, anywhere, plays like this any more. As a result, these recordings make the pieces sound utterly different: different in phrasing, dynamics, and use of rubato and portamento; and, indeed, in the entire approach to these pieces.

This effect will sound weird to some people, but to others (maybe the older amongst us) it will be a glimpse of a vanished, forgotten world, where emotion and feeling (or, if you like, sentimentality) were at least as important as technique.

Two very fine performanes of these greatest of Russian trios.

Lang Lang and Maisky's contributions appear effortless. Repim, however, does not appear willing to let the other voices take centrestage, at times coming intrusively to the fore. This is an entirely minor niggle in an otherwise exceptional recording.

All-in-all, a worthy addition to your collection. The only better version I can think of is by Ashkenazy, Perlman and Harrell, which is entirely exquisite.

Exquisite is the only word I can give to describe the performance of this wonderful piece of music from 80+ years ago. It may sound it's age, which is not surprising, but that does not detract from it's beauty. A posthumus round of applause to all three performers for a magical recording. If you are too old to own the original 78s then you must obtain this CD. The transfer is top drawer, well done to all at Naxos.
