Notes & Reviews:

"These are among Rudolf Serkin's last recordings before his death in 1991, and they are typical of what we came to expect from him over the years... The Brahms sonata is given the best performance I've ever heard. Cellist and pianist are in complete sympathy with each other and with the music, evoking its ruefull romanticism with great affection, glowing tones, and subtle phrasing." - Morin, ARG
