Notes & Reviews:

Recordings of Adolf Busch as a violinist and the leader of the Busch Quartet are legendary. However, Busch not only was the leading German violinist between the two world wars but also a composer who compiled a catalogue of more than a hundred works, three of which, and all chamber music, are featured here, played by the Ravinia Trio. The difficulties of the violin parts call for a well-versed violinist like Busch himself, and for the piano part of the much later quartet the pianist had to be familiar with classical music and with the more recent music of Reger, Schönberg, and Busoni.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
It must be noted that, for all their good construction, these works do have pages of elaborate passage-work as filler. The players plainly enjoy doing them. The performances are uniformly fine. Their lucid articulation unravels some tightly knotted melodic strands. CPO's recording has its normal clarity of sound.
