Editorial Reviews

The two-movement Rachmaninoff string quartets, both early works, are seldom heard today, and neither is the trio. The Budapest String Quartet played all this music at one concert in 1952. While the BSQ was a little past its prime, we are still lucky to have these performances. The trio in particular, with the normally mild-mannered Artur Balsam joining in, is breathtakingly passionate in this performance, which convinces me that it's better music than I usually think it is. The recorded sound, though hardly modern, isn't bad. For those who love Rachmaninoff but don't know these pieces, or lovers of the Budapest Quartet, this disc is a real discovery. --Leslie Gerber

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
For months, the audioclips for this cd were connected to some rock item and the Brodsky Quartet was incorrectly listed, instead of the Budapest String Quartet. Hopefully, that has been corrected. This a wonderful and historic recording at the Library of Congress in 1949. The Rachmaninoff works are romantic and modern, and Artur Balsam on piano, is at his best.
