There is a burning fierceness to the romantic sweep of the opening movement that feels so right when I imagine a young, passionate Brahms. For me this is the most joyous and uplifting performance of this inspired music and I urge you to buy this disc for this alone.
If you require a complete set of all three trios then I would recommend the Trio Wanderer on Harmonia Mundi.
But add this one for the B major and you will not regret it!
This CD has created a seismic shift in my attitude to this type of chamber work. The music is quite delightful whether used as pleasing background music or the subject of studied concentration. It is sunny without being superficial or shallow; a winning combination.

One warm and balm y evening in the early to mid 90's, wehile we werre living in San Jose, I drove to the Bay Area Tower records store and bought a pair of handfulls of Brahms's chamber music CD's. I became listening and studying them, and I was simply amazed at how good they were, even his early stuff. I already knew his Symphonic pieces and adored the Concerti, notablery his ZViolin Concerto in D, THE greatest of ALL Violin Concertos, but his Chamber music was still a mystery to me. Not for long, As I got hooked that night. Evber since, I have collected and learned new works, but I have a lot of work to do in the String Quartets. This trio was an easy assignmernt to give myself.
The First Piano Trio has an opening movement of wonderful simplicity and gentle demeanor. It isa p[l;ayed hee by these three soloists with affection, respect and much virtuosity. Running a leisurely 1517, the Pires-Dumay_wang threesome (PDW) offer us very good ensemble playing with a comfortable and relaxed tempo, aLLOWING EVERY TINY NUANCE IN THE MUSIC TO RECEIVE IT'S FULL VOIKCE. WHY, IT'S ALMOST AS IF THESE THREE FOLKS WERE "SINGING" THEIR ROLES.
The first trio,the op.8 is inte key of BMajor and, in this recording, we heaar thelarefinal version of thie trio from 1889. I don't believebrahmsevised much of his work,this is the only one I know was revised. I wouldlike to find and buy the original work from his twenties and I'm guessing thee wan't much reason to edit this trio, other than tomakeiteven more.The opening Allegro on brio is a beautiful flowing melody with each of he instruments making significant contributions to the oveall sonoritythr 2nd movement is a short scherzo of only6:36 andit is full of skipping, sunny and pleaent musicalrhythms, the strings and the pianotakig turns leading the way to the conclusion.The delicae and lovely adagiolast for 9:13 and we can savor everynote from this trio ofexcellent players
