Notes and Editorial Reviews

"When the Beaux Arts' cycle of trios was finally completed it received almost universal accolades, including Gramophone's 1979 Record of the Year award. Their playing throughout is indeed distinguished: vital, refined and sharply responsive to the music's teeming richness and variety.... Six of the nine discs here contain well over an hour of glorious, enriching music, much of the playing is extraordinarily felicitous, and the recording has Philips's customary warmth and refinement... This is a set that should last a lifetime."

– Gramophone

"It is not often possible to hail one set of records as a 'classic' yet this set can be described in those terms, for the playing of the Beaux Arts Trio is of
Read more the very highest musical distinction... This is a set no Haydn lover should miss: It is desert Island music."
