“Their performances of Brahms’ three Piano Trios are gratifyingly expansive and red-blooded. They appear to have undertaken this project not for business but for pleasure . . . There’s impeccable musicality and considerable relish in these performances.” — BBC Music Magazine

World-famous cellist Yo-Yo Ma and his long-time collaborator, pianist Emanuel Ax, are joined by violinist Leonidas Kavakos in their first recording: the three piano trios of Johannes Brahms. Ma and Ax have built together a distinguished catalog of recordings, yet this marks their first recording of the trios together. Between them, Ma and Ax have shared four Grammy® Awards for their recordings of Brahms’ chamber music.
