In this album they come together to provide a stunning, deeply compelling portrayal of Brahms and Schumann- two very different men who nonetheless shaped each other's lives in countless ways.

profile & recordings >>

‘Consider the array of artists: Martha Argerich, mercurial and generous piano poet; Gideon Kremer, probing violinist of wide horizons; Yuri Bashmet, life and soul of the viola; and the impulsive cellist Mischa Maisky.' The Times

‘... the results are every bit as incandescent as you would expect with Argerich partnering such a stellar trio of string players... It sounds like a concert performance; there is a perfectely focused energy and a sense of daring about every phrase. The sense of expressive give-and-take within the quartet seems almost subliminal... Argerich's playing is crammed with vivid invention.' The Guardian

‘Any release featuring that brilliant firebrand Martha Argerich deserves close critical attention (and usually oodles of praise), but the remainder of the cast list here redoubles the eagerness of one's anticipation. Brahms's G minor Piano Quartet, Op. 25 is the right piece for this team, an extrovert, brilliant piece.' International Record Review

‘What's less expected, perhaps, is how well the four of them play together -- the excellent easy ensemble throughout, and the fine blend of the strings... Argerich's pianistic prowess continually lights up the music... Schumann's fantastical world, as well as Brahms's more overtly emotional one, is brought magnificently to life.' Gramophone

‘A quick glance at the artists involved in this production told me to expect nothing less than a high-powered, intensely focused, tensile performance . . . The clarity and perfection of ensemble this group brings to bear upon the music at hand is truly breathtaking; and the recording, a production from Berlin's Teldex Studio, is up-close, detailed, and extraordinarily clean and transparent.'
