"Playing through these discs is an awe-inspiring experience ... ...it is worth its musical weight in gold. Mono or stereo, beg, borrow, or better still buy, for there has never been anything like this before in recorded chamber music" - The Gramophone, 1962
This week's release features four works, all recorded between 21-30 August 1961: Mozart's String Quintet No. 4, Franck's Piano Quintet, Brahms's String Sextet No. 2 and Mendelssohn's Octet for Strings.
They date from the first series of legendary chamber concerts arranged and performed by Jascha Heifetz and Gregor Piatigorsky in August 1961, and in these astonishing new stereo XR remasters you'll find fine detail, subtle individual shadings and glorious ensemble playing emerging anew - as if hidden in the shadows for nearly 60 years.
