Brahms: The Three Piano Quartets (double disc set) (2010)

Brahms: The Three Piano Quartets (double disc set)

In commemoration of beloved pianist Gilbert Kalish’s 75th birthday, this two-disc set pairs the complete Piano Quartets of Johannes Brahms with Franz Schubert’s Violin Sonatina in a minor, D. 385. The recordings on this set capture live performances given between 2003 and 2009 at Music@Menlo, where Gilbert Kalish has played an essential role in creating the premier chamber music festival that Music@Menlo is today. Gilbert Kalish has served as a key member of the artist-faculty of Music@Menlo’s Chamber Music Institute; through performances such as these of the Brahms piano quartets, he continues to define a standard of excellence in interpretation and musical performance for generations of young artists.
