Christian Tetzlaff (violin), Tanja Tetzlaff (cello), Lars Vogt (piano)

Award-winning violinist Christian Tetzlaff and pianist Lars Vogt are joined with Tanja Tetzlaff on this exciting new recording of the Johannes Brahms (1833-1897) Piano Trios.

“The string players here – brother and sister Christian and Tanja Tetzlaff – are regular quartet partners. Together with sensitive pianism from Lars Vogt, ensemble is alert, accurate, never forced: already a favourite CD.” The Observer, 31st May 2015 *****

“Much in evidence is that telepathy that passes between musicians comfortable in each other's company…the Tetzlaffs and Vogt bring a Teutonic terseness to it, screwing up the tension that is so much part of Brahms's music and making each span into a wonderfully cathartic experience.” Gramophone Magazine, August 2015

“The Ondine recording team have caught the spirit of these performances well, with the piano a strong presence yet without swamping the more fragile solo strings.” BBC Music Magazine, October 2015

“These three musicians, who perform together often as the Tetzlaff Trio, bring polish and passion to three classic works. The start of the Adagio of Trio No. 1 is especially memorable, its hushed, fragile strings alternating with a piano line played by Mr. Vogt with both softness and grandeur.” New York Times, 11th December 2015

Horn Trio in E flat major, Op. 40

Stephen Stirling (horn)

Clarinet Trio in A minor, Op. 114

Richard Hosford (clarinet)


Here are all of Brahms’s Trios assembled on one album. The three Piano Trios date from the extremes of the composer’s life—Opus 8 from 1853/4 when he was about twenty years old (though here performed in its revised version of 1889), and Opus 101 from 1886, written when he was fifty-three. The Clarinet Trio was one of his very last works, written for the clarinettist who also inspired the Clarinet Quintet and the two Opus 120 Sonatas, Richard Mühlfeld. The marvellous Horn Trio is a middle-period work, composed when the composer was in his early thirties. The five works are presented chronologically and all are immaculately played by the acclaimed Florestan Trio.

“A clear first recommendation for any of the five works. I find these fully the equal of any other versions of any of the trios in the catalogs, whether by present-day or ‘golden age’ performers. Wonderful music-making” Fanfare

“These are very desirable recordings … enriching performances that make one aware of Brahms’s stature first and the superb musicianship of the executants second—which is exactly as it should be!” Gramophone Magazine

Smetana Trio

New CD from BBC Music Magazine Award Winning Smetana Trio.

Following on from the recording of the complete trios of Antonin Dvořak (Supraphon), the renowned and critically acclaimed Smetana Trio have taken the logical step of recording a Johannes Brahms album of the same ilk. As a pianist, Brahms earned admiration back in his childhood and later on many occasions even premiered his own pieces. Almost four decades span the first trio Brahms wrote, at the age of twenty, and the last. Besides piano trios in the traditional configuration, he composed a trio for horn and a trio for clarinet. The sound of the horn, an instrument Brahms himself played, was reputedly loved by the composer’s mother and he wrote the horn trio as a response to her death. Brahms created the clarinet trio for the celebrated clarinettist Richard Muhlfeld, whom the composer esteemed immensely.

The Smetana Trio’s guests on the new recording are the outstanding clarinettist Ludmila Peterkova and the superlative horn player Přemysl Vojta, winner of the ARD Munich competition (2010) and holder of a Beethoven Ring. Brahms with the tenderness and engrossing romantic expressiveness of the Smetana Trio.

Recorded at the Martinek Studio, Prague, June 2011 (Trios Nos 2&3, Clarinet Trio) and June 2012 (Trio No. 1, Horn Trio).

“Overall, these musicians have an especially strong and fine sense of line. The Horn Trio is full of echt-Romantic vistas and half-lights...The Clarinet Trio is a revelation: not at all the austere, reserved piece it often seems, but deeply poetic and full of late autumnal colours.” BBC Music Magazine, April 2013 ****

“there is spontaneous engagement with the music and such a heroic sweep to the playing...(Peterkova's clarinet playing in the Op. 114 Trio is absolutely magical)...The Smetana Trio is thus at or near the top of my short-list of relatively recent recordings of these glorious works.” International Record Review, May 2013

“What the Smetana may lack in polish they make up for in exciting raw edged playing. This rather sets them apart from other ensembles.” MusicWeb International, April 2013

Brahms: Piano Trios Nos. 1-3 (Complete)


David Perry (violin), Paulina Zamora (piano), Uri Vardi (cello)

In this recording, Delos adds to its critically acclaimed series of Brahms’s finest chamber works. The marvellous performances heard here come to you thanks to the artistry of violinist David Perry, pianist Paulina Zamora and cellist Uri Vardi. In their accomplished hands – and with Delos’s hallmark lush sonics – the music positively glows and soars.

In a sense, all three of Johannes Brahms’s piano trios can be considered among his late-period chamber works. While the Trio No.1 in B major is a work from the composer’s early years (1854), he revised it extensively in 1890 – and it is this reworked version that we usually hear in concert and on record. The second and third trios date respectively from 1882 and 1886.

While Brahms’s revision of the first trio preserves something of the original version’s brash feel and youthful impetuosity, it brought the work a bit more in line with his other late chamber works – sharing their often autumnal moods, lyrical intensity and subtle structural complexities.
