Notes & Reviews:

"And there's freedom aplenty in these vigorous, highly charged performances...These are strong-jawed readings with a great sense of purpose...Another asset to this set is the violinist himself, Leonid Kogan, whose tone is searing in its intensity...this new release captures a compelling moment in history: it must have been some evening!" -Gramophone

This CD, the latest title within the acclaimed Russian Masters series, presents three towering Russian musicians. At a superb 1960s Prague Spring festival concert, Kogan, Barshai and Rostropovich performed together three of Beethoven's four string trios. These three soloists encounter on a single stage was a veritable feast for chamber music lovers and one of the apices of the Prague Spring. Now, half a century later, you too can savor this remarkable concert.

Three legends on one stage - a precious encounter you can again enjoy, half a century on.
