HASH(0xa51573fc) out of 5 stars Beautifully performed late romantic chamber works a la Brahms! Aug. 12 2009
By Giradman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Well, I've already made a comment on the undeserved 3* review which was basically an erroneous complaint about 'downloading' the music with absolutely no mention of the music, performers, or the quality of the recording. Herzogenberg was a friend of Brahms (and his wife a piano pupil) - I now own about a half dozen discs of this 'little known' composer, all chamber & piano works. Of course, his music is late romantic and Brahmsian w/ some reviewers stating the compositions not quite up to the standards of the 'better remembered' composers of the era.

However, these Piano Trios are well composed w/ pleasant melodies & phrasing throughout the works; the ATOS Trio are into these works w/ dedication and plenty of gusto! CPO as expected produced an outstanding recording - the musicians are in your listening room. Now maybe the music is just 4* but the performance & sound are certainly 5*, thus the reason for my rating. If you like late romantic chamber music, Brahms, and the thrill of discovering unknown composers, then give Herzogenberg a try!
HASH(0xa51243b4) out of 5 stars Noble and Passionate Minor-Key Piano Trios Jan. 22 2016
By Hexameron - Published on Amazon.com

Heinrich von Herzogenberg (1843-1900) not only sounds like Brahms, but he comes as close to writing at the quality of Brahms as any other second-tier composer I’ve heard. He was himself a close friend of Brahms, who was reticent about expressing praise for Herzogenberg’s works. I’ve read some speculation that Brahms was envious of Herzogenberg’s abilities, and after hearing his cello sonatas, I can believe it. The two piano trios are almost as great. Each one is teeming with Germanic sobriety and minor-key tension.

The Piano Trio No. 1 in C minor (1876) is a dark-hued and consistently interesting work. The opening movement has a brooding quality about it with accretions of passion, high energy, and explosive defiance. The “Andante” is benign and full of sweet charm, while the “Scherzo” sounds like Brahms with boisterous thick chords. The finale is a grand affair of neo-Baroque gravity. It even begins with a Bachian ground bass piano introduction before unleashing the energetic and serious theme. Herzogenberg has a penchant for passionate momentum and building towards muscular climaxes.

The Piano Trio No. 2 in D minor (1882) is cut from the same dignified cloth of Brahms’s C minor trio. This is best displayed in the captivating “Allegro,” marked by robust strength and expressive dark-hued lyrical strings. There are spectacular moments of sweltering and impassioned ideas throughout. In the “Andante,” tenderness and beauty prevail until the gradual ascension of a thunderous climax of emotional power. The “Allegro molto” is a memorable fiery dance, while the tension is relieved in the fast and lighter-textured finale.

Bottom line: These are two superb piano trios from a composer who rivals any other second-tier German Romantic. However, I strongly recommend Herzogenberg’s cello sonatas; they are his best works.

HASH(0xa5157738) out of 5 stars This Release is Superlative Music with Superlative Music-making Sept. 17 2009
By J Scott Morrison - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I really have little to add to Giradman's review except to give it a five-star rating in order to counteract the nonsensical three-star rating given by another reviewer who, as Giradman points out, didn't comment about the music at all.

Very well done BUT why are the first two movements not available for download? This is ridiculous on the part of Amazon. How can you enjoy a chamber work with the first two movements of the first trio Op 24 MISSING!! and not downloadable??
