Happy Birthday Manahem Pressler!

Today is the 94th birthday of Menahem Pressler, founding member and pianist of the Beaux Arts Trio. We wish him well and thank him for the many decades of musical pleasure that he has provided us with.

Here is a complete performance of him making his debut with the Berliner Philharmoniker at the Berlin Philharmonie about four years ago (January 2014)!

There is a wonderful 60 CD box set of the Beaux Arts Trio’s complete Philips recordings  available from Amazon which we cannot recommend too highly for lovers of Piano Trio music.
