'Enriching performances that make one aware of Brahms's stature first and the superb musicianship of the executants second - which is exactly as it should be!' (Gramophone)
'These are very desirable recordings' (Gramophone)
'A clear first recommendation for any of the five works. I find these fully the equal of any other versions of any of the trios in the catalogs, whether by present-day or 'golden age' performers. Wonderful music-making' (Fanfare, USA)

I'm beginning here to resurrect some of the works that "disappeared" from Avax or were "abandoned" from the original uploaders. There's not a real thought behind it, I'm just cleaning up my HDs and following the wind. What I downloaded long ago is flowing back. All credits go to the first uploader. Enjoy...
