 Beautiful and Interesting Performances July 8, 2013 By Gail M. (Goleta, CA) See All My Reviews "I bought this disk because I like the Brahms Piano Quintet. Paul Gulda with the Hagen Quartet provide a very enjoyable recording of the Brahms, competitive with the extraordinary competition provided by Douglas/Tokyo Quartet and Fleisher/Emerson Quartet, to name two other greats. The piano is well balanced against the strings, which have beautiful tone, and the Brahms rhythms are well articulated in the 3rd and 4th movements. I'm not very familiar with the Schoenberg Chamber Symphony, but this arrangement seems to be very well done and certainly is interesting. The Schoenberg may in fact be a chief reason for many listeners to choose this disk. But in any case the Brahms is fine." Report Abuse
