Brahms cello sonatas September 12, 2012
By David Levy (Chicago, IL) See All My Reviews
"I have 4 recordings of both Brahms cello sonatas between which I can make direct comparisons. Well, actually 5 because I own a Mercury vinyl disc with Starker and Sebok which I've had over 40 years and I don't think its the same performances. This newest disc release is my favorite of all the other recordings save possibly, in parts of op.38 where I think their tempo is livelier in the finale in the Mercury vinyl version. My other recordings include du Pre/Barenboim, Rostropovich/R Serkin, and Leonard Rose/Jean-Bernard Pommier. In general Starker/Sebok give the most dynamic performances of all: brisker tempi, brighter contrasts between other parts which may be slower. Both Opus 38 and 99 have lyrical introspective sections and more exhiliarated, powerful passages and this team does it the best!"
