I looked this up at the BIS website and didn't find anything. I understand it's Frank Peter Zimmermann, Christian Poltera and Antoine Tamestit. Any word from Bissie when it's coming? And any pearls about the recording? I'm most excited about this one!

It's listed as in stock at ArkivMusic. The BIS web site always seems to lag the info on this site. I'm looking forward to this as well.

Queen Elizabeth Hall - May 09, 2008 concert review

You left the last sentence of the review out:

"Throughout it sounded as though we were eavesdropping on an unforced conversation between three old friends, each supremely confident in each other's company. This was a miraculously complete exploration of a great work."

Indeed! Especially Wolfgang's pre-echo of "There's a Tavern in the Town..." just as the development begins in the first movement -- how did he know?

This is a stunning release in every way: beautiful music beautifully played and beautifully recorded. It's a great small-scale demo disc.

Here my take, which I posted in the BIS thread. Perhaps here somebody would like to discuss the strange placement of the viola.

I also like this disc very much, especially the playing. Sound is excellent, although I was irritated, that cello and viola are both located to the right. The cello comes directly from the right speaker, the viola almost. I would have preferred to have the third instrument come from the center. Now there is quite a big hole in the middle. Any reason for this choice of recording?

And yes, I know that if the viola plays in the middle, it will be a bit to the right because of the position the instrument has in relation to the player. But not that much.

Otherwise, an excellent recording which fills a need in SACD catalogue.

Hmm, I'm interested in the record but a significant hole in the middle sounds like a big problem in a string trio recording ( I'm listening in two-channel).
