Shot in 1974, this episode of the Classic Archive television series features a startling, impeccable performance by one of the twentieth century's finest chamber ensembles. Brahms' Trios are among his most soulful and demanding works, and they're interpreted faithfully here, in broad strokes and carefully controlled flourishes. Rose was the greatest American cellist of his age, an influential musical pedagogue and a studied master of Brahms' contributions to the cello repertoire. His unmatched familiarity with this material is evident here, and the interaction between he and his partners is flawless. The entire performance is brilliantly shot and edited to delineate each distinct passage for dramatic effect. All three musicians and their beautiful instruments are granted roughly equal screen time, appearing individually, in pairs or altogether in accordance with the prominence of the instruments.

Befitting the quality of its content, this DVD is a first-rate production. Its A/V quality is excellent, its interface easily navigated. Menus here are hierarchical, presented in the viewer's choice of English, French, German or Spanish. Each movement can be accessed individually from a scene selection menu. A preview gallery includes brief excerpts from seven other titles in EMI's Classic Archive series, which feature the likes of Fournier, Oistrakh and Klemperer.
