This Grammy winning double album of the Brahms String Sextets brilliantly captures these beautiful chamber works. This digital recording from 1989 features the sextet of Yo-Yo Ma and Sharon Robinson on cellos, Isaac Stern and Cho-Liang Lin on violins, and Jaime Laredo and Michael Tree on violas. And what makes this performance equally groundbreaking and remarkable is that this sextet play with a magical self-assurance and confidence. From the sublime opening measures of Op. 18, you are in for a treat. As a bonus a 1991 recording of "Theme and Variations for Piano" (which is an arrangement of the second movement of the first string sextet) by Emanuel Ax is included.
