Aimee bonus Brahms
I do, especially his chamber music. Did I really need an umpteenth version of these quartets? Absolutely—I didn’t know these performances; they’re terrific, and the up close in-depth sound is irresistible. A very special issue. Thanks so much!
Beautiful playing, beautiful music, splendid sound
Brahms's string quartets are dense and difficult, both for listeners and players. The Fine Arts Quartet succeeds in making good musical sense out of these rewarding works, which means that the listener has a much easier time "getting into" the compositions. This gets five stars for the interpretation and for the HDTT DXD sound, which is remarkably analog-like. These are the kinds of files that make people give up their vinyl collections and stick to digital.
