Exceptional performances of music for this unique ensemble.

The Trio in E-flat Major, Op. 40 by Johannes Brahms reigns as one of the supreme works of chamber music that includes the French horn, and it is often thought of as the model for all of the succeeding works composed for this trio. The instrumentation is certainly unique, as there were no precedents of note in the major chamber music oeuvre. Paired with the Brahms on this recording are two rarely performed and previously unrecorded horn trios from the beginning of the last century. All three performers are internationally acclaimed and give exceptional performances of this repertoire.

Review:
"[Brahms' Horn Trio]...something any music lover should hear every now and then. Ruske's full yet not-too-dark horn sound seems ideal next to Ms. Frautschi's dusky-hued violin and Prutsman's very dark toned Steinway. Balances are sublime..." (American Record Guide)

"Even if you already have half-a-dozen versions of the Brahms trio in your collection, this new one can easily stand beside the best of them I've heard...not only will you get a superb Brahms trio with Ruske, Frautschi, and Prutsman, but the Holbrooke alone makes this a must-have release." (Fanfare)
