"This is a stunning record. While I own an early original pressing, sonically speaking it doesn't hold a candle to the re-issue. Starker's cello is bold, woodsy and seated with proper perspective near Sebok's piano. The performances recorded here are lively, romantic and heartfelt…An outstanding pair of performances in equally outstanding sound. What more could you want? This is a must own issue!" Recording = 10/10; Music = 10/10 – Richard S Foster, Hi-Fi+

Brahms’s Cello Sonatas could well be described as “romantic expression dressed in classical garb”, filled as they are with the selfsame musical philosophy which is to be found in many of his instrumental works. Although 21 years lay between the two compositions, Brahms remained true to the formal musical language of the Viennese masters, and this brought him – and other composers of his time – the reproach of imitating Beethoven.
 
Sonically, Speakers Corner has hit one completely out of the park with the Brahms sonatas, checking all the right boxes when compared to the original: overall tonality and timbre now sound more natural; imaging is more realistic, with a fine sense of scale that puts the music making right in your room; the soundstage is now deeper and better-layered; and overall there's a more intimate feel, with subtle instrumental details left completely intact. Starker's cello sounds so full and alive at times that it's spooky: there's so much vivid warmth, life and richness present that you can practically feel every rosin-laden bow stroke. Plucked strings sound realistic, and it's also easy to hear how Starker draws that huge and powerful sound from his cello's resonating body.
 
So do yourself a favor and buy this record pronto. Heck—buy two and keep one on reserve, as I'm willing to bet you'll wear out your first copy by playing it so much. This is a true reference recording that no music-loving audiophile should be without. PositiveFeedback
