Notes & Reviews:

The Guarneri Trio Prague returns to Brahms with a second volume of his Piano Trios. The trio number two, opus 87, was completed in the summer of 1882 and is a richly romantic work, full of soaring melodies. The A major trio, opus posthumous, is likely from the early 1850s. Its attribution is not certain. This ‘sturm and drang’ trio is one of the most mysterious components of the composer’s legacy, originally culled from a collection of musical manuscripts by musicologist Ernst Bücken in 1924.

"The Guarneri Trio play both works in a confident, direct manner. Where the music demands it, there's no lack of power and energy, and all three players sustain a rich, full tone in Brahms's expansive melodies." - Gramophone
