Notes and Editorial Reviews

Brahms's First Piano Quartet - the one that received the attentions of Arnold Schoenberg (love it or hate it) - has attracted some of the great pianists: Emil Gilels, Arthur Rubinstein, Rudolf Serkin, Murray Perahia, and now Martha Argerich form a veritable constellation of stars. Here is a performance that grows in stature from the sheer luminosity of the playing. One of those amazing comings together of great musicians.
