Johannes Brahms: Quartets, Quintets, Sextets
Verdi Quartett
(and guests)
4 CDs (2018, Hänssler)

Picked this set up from the big Performing Arts branch here in the city. And though I had all the browsing stacks seemingly to myself the current city-wide short-of-staff closings/abbreviated hours gave the deserted building an ominous chill. I actually missed dodging people in the aisles and eyeing the choices of music in other people's clutches. This box set leaped out at me though it isn't the approach I expected for a collection of Brahms chamber pieces (the cover is hardly Brahmsian) but a welcome one: the Verdi Quartett is restrained, yet poignant. At times I do miss some the effusiveness from more famous virtuoso musicians but there is something to be said for temperance. It's a faithful if not the most passionate rendering of the maestro. Somehow the measured interpreations fit the time. Full YouTube playlist.

Btw these magnificent recordings were done for DG rather than Melodia, the Soviets just reissued them (my grandpa had all of them). Live recordings aside, Gilels only recorded in studio for Western labels since going beyond the Iron Curtain in the early 1950s, and exclusively for DG since 1970.

#27 he also recorded for BBC in the 1950s and sometimes I think I like it even better though the tempi are crazy fast
