The brand-new album by the world acclaimed Pavel Haas Quartet, the pianist Boris Giltburg and the violist Pavel Nikl featuring Brahms quintets, which was released last week, has received a wonderful review on Presto Music and has also been selected as the Recording of the Week.
“I always find it extraordinary that a small group can produce such a huge sound, full of raw power and magnificent enormity… A notable example of this is in Op. 34, where, aided by Giltburg's lavishly sonorous contribution, they provide a sumptuous conclusion to the first movement that conjures the resonance of a much larger ensemble. Another constant thread running through all their recordings is the range and variety of timbres that they deliver, and the ease with which they switch between them… with these splendid accounts of both quintets they have most certainly not disappointed.”
