JOHANNES, ANNE-SOPHIE AND ALEXIS –WHAT A TEAM!

In this recording we have three of Brahms’ greatest chamber works (the violin sonatas) played by, in my humble opinion, two of classical music’s greatest performers–Anne-Sophie Mutter, on violin and Alexis Weissenberg, on piano. The “wow factor” is very much in evidence in this recording–great music (some of the finest chamber music that ever has been penned) fabulous violin playing and marvelous piano playing coming together in such a way that I just sat back listening in total awe feeling that life really ain’t too bad when one can hear music and performances like those contained on this recording at such a reasonable (cheap!) price! (Anne-Sophie and Alexis have a wonderful “go at it” in the fourth movement of the 3rd Sonata–wow!)
Although this disc is at the “bargain basement” price of four dollars and ninety-seven cents ($4.97), the sound is superb. EMI is really to be commended for offering these superb performances at such a “rock bottom” price. I truly loved this recording as you will too if you purchase it!
