The name Yuri Bashmet is known to any music aficionado. He has been an active performer for almost forty years. Pianist Mikhail Muntian has been Yuri Bashmet’s constant ensemble partner. Recorded live at the Grand ?all of Moscow Conservatory, 23 March 1984. These are Johannes Brahms last two completed instrumental works.
