Notes and Editorial Reviews

I like the way the Beaux Arts never allow the first movement to become musically oppressed by its own introspection. They are always ready to turn a phrase from the dying fall of regret into a new upbeat of dance or determination. When it comes to the central variations, though, the Beaux Arts offer a series of delightful and delighted Russian tableaux, with Pressler's split chords and Cohen's sweet, almost Milstein-esque violin imparting a limpid, old-world style to playing...

The Beaux Arts also offer the little G minor Trio...[They] take delight in changing light, colour and inflection at each repeated phrase, and eagerly seize on the new character of each returning theme in the light of what has gone before.
