5.0 out of 5 stars OPENING UP A HEW WORLD TO ME 12 Nov. 2008
By Michael Capizzi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I'm ashamed to admit that after 50 years of listening to classical music, I encountered the Beaux Arts Trio by accident recently on the NPR website. I listened to their farewell conert last August, and was thunderstruck. This is beautiful music that resonates deeply. The playing of all three members (whomever they might be at any given time) is exemplary. I don't want to sound goofy, but the piano playing, especially, brings to mind that old Shakespearean quote we had to memorize in high school, ..."it dropeth like the gentle rain from heaven upon the place beneath". But more amazing to me is the cello, which is more sensed that heard often in these recordings. It must take an extroadinary love for the music and high regard for one's felow musicians to subordinate one's sound to theirs in order to produce such incredible music. Surely this is the foundation which allows the trio to create music of such high quality. Others wil provide the more professonal review. I can only say that these cds have become among my very favorites. An absolute must for any collection. Highly recommended.

Finally, a small note referencing a previous reviewer who cites the missing variation in the Tchaikovsky teio. Such a flaw, while real, is irrelevant to loving these recordings.
5.0 out of 5 stars Bought it for the Smetana Piano Trio alone 25 Jan. 2017
By TexThai - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
These guys are AWESOME!!!!! And the sound is AMAZING!!!!!
Surprisingly well recorded, I was stunned by how great the Smetana Piano Trio sounds here. It is first class. All the other 3 discs and music is probably equally great, it is beautifully played, and I consider those discs almost free, such is the value and my satisfaction with the Smetana.

5.0 out of 5 stars Add it to your collection 18 Sept. 2006
By Jonathan Boyce - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Uniformly great playing on recordings spanning eight years, eleven compositions, and two violinists is not an easy feat, but the BAT does it admirably here. Excellent also is the sound: analog to digital remastering sounds like an LP to my ears, and the balance of the three instruments is always even and well tempered. True, I am on more than one compostion drawn to Pressler's beautiful cantabile touch more than the other instruments, but the violin and cello are always first rate.

Nine of the pieces are 19th century, Romantic works which are paired with two from the 20th: Ives and Shostakovich. They deftly and successfully handle the disparate styles.

Thirty dollars will get you over five hours of pleasure on four discs. Highly recommended.
5.0 out of 5 stars Elegant Early Beaux Arts Trio 26 April 2016
By L. Levy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
These are the early versions of the Beaux Arts Trio. As such, the performances are as exactly as I remember this fine ensemble - wonderful. That Pressler continues on is amazing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another "Original Masters" Gem 21 May 2005
By Michael Brad Richman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Those familiar with my reviews on Amazon know of my love for Universal's "Original Masters" box set series, but at first I passed on purchasing this title. It's not that I don't enjoy the Beaux Arts Trio, for I do, and I own their recordings of the Piano Trios of Beethoven, Haydn, Dvorak, and Mozart among others. Mainly it had to the with the fact that I don't collect chamber performances the way I do concertos and symphonies, and I already had other renditions of many of the works collected here -- Chopin, Mendelssohn, Schumann, Shostakovich, Tchaikovsky, etc. However, after stumbling upon this set at my local library, it took only one listen to know that I had to add this limited edition box to my shelves. These recordings, made between 1967 and 1974, capture Beaux Arts in their prime in glorious, crisp analog stereo sound. Many of their accounts, particularly of the Chopin, Shostakovich and Tchaikovsky, are superior to the other versions I own (in this case trios featuring Ma and Argerich respectively). Also, there are several compositions I had never heard before, including trios by Smetana, Ives and Clara Schumann, which are all delightful. Overall, this is a wonderful box set and another gem in the "Original Masters" series.
