Discussion: Brahms: Piano Trios Op. 8, 101 - Guarneri Trio Prague

I indicated that I found JJ's review (well, at least the translation of the review) to be helpful. I have several of the Guarneri's previous SACD trio releases (Mozart, Schubert) and have generally found them to be very pedestrian performances. JJ says the Brahms is in line with their prior efforts (which he really likes). Since we appear to be at polar opposite ends of the spectrum as far as the Guarneri is concerned, I marked "helpful" - because I now know that I will avoid this release at all costs despite really loving these Brahms trios. What do you think?

Thinking that a review is helpful does not imply that you agree with the reviewer.

There have been mixed opinions about the performances of the Guarneri Trio including describing their performance for one SACD as "comatose". Like you I think I will not buy their SACDs.

On the positive side the reviewer has added an English translation of the review.

Well, of course, that was the main point of my post.

I presume you made your main point because you think that too many confuses "helpful" with "I agree" and asking if others have the same opinion. Since you made more than one point I could not simply say "I agree" on what I presumed you meant.

I am also one who has found Schubert: Piano Trios - Guarneri Trio Prague to be unexciting, but I enjoyed Czech Piano Trios - Guarneri Trio .

It would be interesting if someone other than JJ owns this Brahms disc and would comment, however briefly on the sound and musicianship.

I'd just like to say in the translated review that the third trio (opus 101) is actually in C minor, not C flat.
