Egon Petri plays Brahms

This week's new release is rather gorgeous, if I say so myself, but then it does feature some of my favourite music by Johannes Brahms, in exquisite performances by Egon Petri, with violinist Joseph Szigeti and violist Samuel Lifschey, in fabulous transfers by Mark Obert-Thorn, who writes:
“In 2015, the British APR label released a 7-CD box containing Egon Petri’s complete solo and concerto recordings from 1929 through 1951, which I worked on compiling and remastering. Due to the label’s practice of not including chamber works on otherwise complete pianist editions, two recordings were omitted from that set: the Brahms D minor Violin Sonata with Szigeti and his F minor Viola Sonata with Samuel Lifschey. I am happy to have an opportunity to present them now, along with the first digital-era appearance of a Petri Brahms solo recital from LP.”
