Notes & Reviews:

This deluxe, mid-priced boxed set of twelve discs contains some of the finest recordings ever made of the chamber music masterpieces of Johannes Brahms. Containing over thirteen hours of glorious music, this set features star performers such as Marc-Andre Hamelin, the Florestan Trio, Lawrence Power and Dame Thea King. Musical selections include all the sonatas and sonata movements (including both clarinet and viola versions of Op.120), both string sextets, the three quintets, the piano and string quartets and all five trios. For anyone who wants to explore the riches of Brahms' works in this genre, this set would be a perfect gift.

'Immerse yourself in this set of 12 CDs of Brahms's chamber music ... In the last 25 years, Hyperion has managed to persuade some of the finest of chamber musicians to reveal their affection for Brahms in recordings of remarkably consistent quality ... Altogether life affirming music in life enhancing performances: surely one of the best buys of the year?' (BBC Music Magazine)

'This magnificent 12-CD collection ... Marc-André Hamelin and the Leopold String Trio find the right gypsy touch in the First Piano Quartet ... The Florestan Trio is movingly intense in the piano trios ... Lawrence Power's playing of the viola alternative to the clarinet sonatas is magical. And there's much more! A superb bargain' (Classic FM Magazine)

'The pick of this crop has to be Brahms's Complete Chamber Music from Hyperion. Spanning more than two decades, this box contains the finest, mainly British, performances, some very recent ... Brahms's two dozen chamber works are among his greatest achievements, and yield little or nothing in quality to the better known output of Mozart and Beethoven. This box contains much buried treasure' (Mail on Sunday)

'Stellar artists, fine sound, splendid presentation. Superb!' (ClassicalSource.com)
