1 review for Brahms – Piano Quintet in F Minor, Op. 34 – Delores Stevens and the Ives Quartet

  1. Dr. AIX

    “A tour de force of technology and artisic care. Recommended as a demo disc for DVD-A in 24/96k 5.1 You could spend a day taking in the full offer here. Tri(3) this for size…audio and video and ROM options. The convincingly youthful andante movement is great, most performances get too serious here (Brahms was 29 when he wrote Op. 34). This is a testament to the practice done by the group. In an age where too much classical performance work has to fit into coffee advert schedules and movie sound stage-pay the bills dross, it is nice to see someone take on a major piece like this for the sake of showing what DVD-A will bring to the world of music. Clara Schumann said this Quintet was the greatest since Schbert’s great C major string quintet. To me, this one recording was enough of an impact to say that it puts AIX (a new label from a Dr Mark Waldrep) on the map with ECM, DMP, Naxos and Wyndham Hill.”
