Some compositions are so good that we wish we could have two of the same. The early Piano Trio in B major, op.8, by Johannes Brahms is one such work and one of music historyís greatest cases of good fortune: it has been transmitted in two versions. As we know, the overly self-critical Brahms otherwise completely destroyed all the early versions, sketches, and drafts of his works.

The Vienna Piano Trioís new Brahms edition in superior Super Audio sound on MDG opens with the late version of this work from the composerís youth and then confronts it with his mature op.87. The late version captivates the listener with a clearly concentrated design distinguishing it from the romantic and stormy first version.
