"Brahms - Violin Sonatas" (CD)
This CD was released as part of a compendium of Rubinstein's output only a few years ago. This (for the record) is volume 41.
That number alone should indicate the prodigious output of one of the 20th century's most famous pianists.
I don't really need any other recording of the Brahms violin sonatas. I have many others, but this is my favorite. I love Henryk Szeryng's tone, musicianship, etc. so much so that his recording of Brahms' first violin sonata in G inspired me to learn it for the viola. Perhaps at the end of my life I'll have done it as much justice as Rubinstein and Szeryng give it.
