Notes & Reviews:

Brahms originally wrote the Piano Quintet, Op. 34, for string quintet before recasting the work as a two-piano sonata. However, the sheet music has not ever been recovered. So, Finnish cellist Karttunen set about its reconstruction. The result has all the vigor and power of the music we know but now recast in a different sonority.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
The clarinet part, played either by Steven Dann or James Boyd, sounds lovely on the viola.
