Brahms: Complete Chamber Music / Maria Joao Pires, Emerson String Quartet and Amadeus Quartet

Notes & Reviews:

Brahms's 24 major chamber-music works represent only a fraction of what he actually composed in the medium, but his strict self-discipline dictated that only the best survived - here complete, in performances by musicians of the highest standards and artistry.
