Great music-making and a bargain to boot

Comments about PBS Beaux Arts at 50 DVD:

If you're a chamber musician, this is a must buy. The trio plays beautifully. But don't believe the stated length of "60 minutes" in the product description. Under Special Features, you will also find:
(a) the COMPLETE concert (all Beethoven trios: Op. 1 #3, Op. 70 #1 ("Ghost"), and the Op. 97 ("Archduke"), plus the slow movement of Op. 11 as an encore.)
(b) bios of the musicians
(c) a coyly titled "Archival Recording" which turns out to be an intense complete performance of the Ravel piano trio from sometime in the 1970s, with pianist Pressler, the original trio cellist Bernard Greenhouse, and then-violinist Isidore Cohen. (black & white)
In other words, there is actually about 3 hours of music on this DVD, which makes it a steal at $4.99 (I paid many times that for my copy a few years ago). Quality of video is excellent; it looks great on a hi-def wide-screen TV; sound is likewise excellent. The performances are stellar - I play violin and studied this Beaux Arts' "Archduke" to help me prepare for a recent music workshop in which I performed 3 movements of it. A keeper for sure.

Beautifully produced record of the irreplacable Menahem Pressler and his magestic group.
