    Not that long ago, via a link you shared. Peter Lawrence multi-tracking on trumpets. Also a phenomenal level of performance. OK, it won’t replace the original but superb all the same

    Last week. Kolkata Blacher is leading a great group of string players in one of the many recordings we have from our Jeruaslem International Chamber Music Festival.

  • Bill Blake says:

    Janine Jansen is a treasure.

    A couple of days ago on WQXR. Also, the combined Escher and Dover Qts. have been programming it the last couple of years.

    Absolutely fantastic, and wonderful to see so many young players in the ensemble. Definitely worth a standing ovation.
