Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Stuyvesant Quartet, founded in 1938 by the brothers Sylvan and Alan Shulman (first violinist and cellist), is heard in a superb reading of one of Johannes Brahms's greatest chamber creations, the Clarinet Quintet in B minor, Op. 115. On this 1947 recording, made at the Majestic Theater in New York, the Stuyvesants are joined by clarinet virtuoso, Al Gallodoro. Gallodoro, had played with the Paul Whiteman Orchestra, and met the Shulman brothers while the three were members of Toscanini's NBC Symphony Orchestra. Also on this nearly 80 minute-long CD are two Mozart quartets: K. 499 and 575, recorded in Bronxville, New York, in 1951. - Bridge Records The Stuyvesant Quartet, founded in 1938 by the brothers Sylvan and Alan Shulman (first violinist and cellist), is heard in a superb reading of one of Johannes Brahms's greatest chamber creations, the Clarinet Quintet in B minor, Op. 115.

 Vintage Audio Treasures August 16, 2013 By Ralph Graves (Hood, VA) See All My Reviews "The Brahms Clarinet Quintet with clarinetist Alfred Gallodoro is given a heavily romantic and sometimes sweet, reading. It's a performance that's full of drama, yet there are passages where the ensemble seems to be simply savoring every note.<br /> <br /> The Stuyvensant's performances of Mozart's String Quartet in D major, K. 499 and String Quartet in D major, K. 575 are more straight-forward. While there is more vibrato than you'd hear in a modern recording, the ensemble keeps things simple and uncluttered.<br /> <br /> This reissue is a window into the past, and a valuable one. No modern quartet would perform these works in the manner of the Stuyvesant. Yet the high degree of musicianship and the emotional charge they give these works makes for compelling listening even today. And the Stuyvesant's interpretations yield insights that can still sound fresh to modern ears." Report Abuse
