Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Last year EMI started promoting the Capuçon Brothers in collaboration with Martha Argerich and on their own. Here's a very substantial demonstration of their qualities, along with a young pianist who has been generating considerable interest recently. (Unfortunately, there's nothing about the performers in the booklet.) The set runs about 10 minutes too long for one CD, but it's offered at single-disc price. These performers give us a consistent approach to the Brahms Trios: highly poetic, played with emphasis on beauty of sound and phrasing, yet dramatic and powerful enough to keep the music moving along. Angel's Eroica Trio offers only the first two Trios, played in a style which emphasizes power, drama, and contrast, while never slighting the poetry of the music. It's a difficult choice, Angel more exciting, Virgin more songful and more comprehensive. Both are worth owning, but the Eroica's playing may stick longer in your memory. --Leslie Gerber

I first heard of the Capucon brothers in a 2002 Lugano festival recording paired with Martha Argerich in the zippy Mendelssohn d-minor trio no. 1. Their gorgeous tonal control and razor-sharp ensemble in the rapid-fire scherzos were truly spellbinding. Note to self: keep an eye on these guys.

Now seeing their healthy discography in 2008 does not surprise me. These are very fine musicians - along with Mr. Angelich who is well-paired with them. It has been an absolute thrill to take in their performances here which present to us a very luminous, slower-to-unfold and deeply communicative Brahms. Each of the three trios is magnificant.

Their overall treatment is exceedingly radiant in tone with somewhat relaxed and notably slower tempos/times compared to other recordings. Compared to say, the Beaux Arts Trio's recordings, this reading here is quite longer in every movement. So often with deliberately slower tempos, a movement is at risk in languishing. Yet, to me, their slower pace really works when combined with their ability to draw out of the inherent romantic ardour within these pieces. It seems these musicians play more from a core of emotional connection felt within the music. I found the overall effect very moving.

Brahms' was twenty before he wrote his first true masterpiece - the Op 8 trio in B major. This piece never quite caught my attention listening to the Beaux Arts recording on Philips Duo. Maybe it was the poorer sound quality of the former, but this piece's greatness finally became obvious to me in the Angelich/Capucon trio's hands. They take their time but it totally gives the music time to breathe and to speak profoundly - so as to savor it more.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Grady Harp HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on June 15, 2011
Format: Audio CD
The Piano Trios of Brahms have long been a staple among chamber music concerts and there are many recordings of these magnificent works, either singly or in sets. But few recordings offering all three of the trios can compare with this elegant 2 CD recording by Renaud Capuçon, violinist, Gautier Capuçon, cellist, and Nicholas Angelich, pianist. Each of the trios is embraced with suave and elegant phrasing and with a truly integrated interplay among these three gifted artists.

Some may prefer a more angular or incisive approach to their Brahms, but for this listener the warmth and eloquence of the readings is Brahms stepping away from the majesty of his symphonies and offering instead personal reveries. The tonal quality is never pushed beyond the border of beautiful sound and the recorded ambiance is direct and perfectly mixed. These are performances to treasure and as the reputations of the artists (this was recorded in 2004) continue to blossom the special quality of these Brahms trio renderings only gains in stature. Grady Harp, June 11

Format: Audio CD
This fine pair of discs contains the 3 piano trios curiously written at opposite ends of Brahms' life. Curious because the early Op.8 trio was well received but did not acquire a successor until Op 87 and finally Op. 101. All 3 trios give considerable musical satisfaction and are among, if not the best from that period.

As regards the performances they remind me of a comment concerning Wilhelm Kempff's Beethoven - 'it is as if Beethoven is speaking directly to us without any medium in between' and so it is with Brahms and these three fine and non self-seeking players. Angelich is the sort of Brahms player who is able to give us a deeply committed viewpoint without ever becoming didactic. The music is always able to flow naturally and effortlessly yet equally avoids just skating along the musical surface. This is a very winning combination of course. Much the same characteristics can be found in the playing of the Capucon brothers and, as a trio, this makes a very rewarding combination.

There have been other fine performances of this repertoire of course but at present this fine recording from 2003 has the advantage of superior recording quality as well as providing a richly involving experience. I would suggest therefore that this should be seriously considered by all collectors of this repertoire and that most purchasers will find that they will be rewarded with a very satisfying musical acquisition.

I thought that you might like to know that before I buy a recording I now look through all the reviews to see if you have posted one. Your assessments and opinions are invaluable. Thank you.
