Notes & Reviews:

This set features all of Brahms's Trios assembled on one album, immaculately played by the acclaimed Florestan Trio. The three Piano Trios date from the extremes of the composer's life - Opus 8 from 1853/4 when he was about twenty years old and Opus 101 from 1886, written when he was fifty-three. The Horn Trio is a middle-period work, composed when the composer was in his early thirties, while the Clarinet Trio was one of his very last works.

Fanfare
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.

Gramophone Magazine
These are very desirable recordings ... 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!
