The Beaux Arts Trio was recognised as one of the world’s greatest classical music ensembles and existed, with changes in membership, for 48 years.
When they performed this concert in 1960, the ensemble was only 5 years old. This recording gives us the opportunity to admire the beginnings of the trio.

“The Beaux Arts' original personnel deliver impassioned Brahms and nuanced Ravel with great immediacy in these live recordings. Pity the piano sound is muffled.”
“[The Ravel] opens with restrained nobility, with power as well as refinement defining characteristics. The scherzo is notably well characterised...the performances and the excellent broadcast quality certainly warrant investigation from this group’s admirers.”
