The Greatest Trio in the 20th Century

"You would never disappointed by this acclaimed trio of pianist Eugene Istomin, violinist Isaac Stern and cellist Leonard Rose. This 4-CD set, recorded during the prime of the musicians, is such a historical record on Beethoven's compositions. Stern's violin is energestic and sharp as a knife, while Rose's cello wraps the pieces up with a sweet but powerful way. Well, Istomin's piano is somewhat lack of charisma, however, his sound is not buried under his great partners' performances. Especially, the Trio, Op. 1, No.3, on the second disc, is a superb combination of the three. It is sad that the trio ended by the death of Leonard Rose in the 1980s. It could have been delightful if we were able to see the three musicians' performances today."

"Extraordinary. What is it possible to say of this fantastic Trio that should not have been said already? One of the best versions of the " Trioes with piano " of BEETHOVEN, of the whole history.
MAGNIFICENT RECORDING, WITH A SPLENDID SOUND."
Very good set of trios

"While not up to the precedent of excellence set forth by Kempff, Szeryng and Fournier, this is still a very enjoyable set of Beethoven's piano trios. The artists involved had been friends for years and had always desired to record together, but one thing or another kept disrupting their endeavor until the mid-sixties when they finally got together. In addition to these recordings, they also did Brahms, Schubert and Mendelssohn, all quite satisfying. Another fine choice for these trios is by the Beaux Arts Trio Beethoven: The Piano Trios. Which ever one you choose, you won't regret it."
