HERMANN BERENS (1826-1880): 3 String Trios, Op. 85.
Catalogue Number: 05J045
Label: Intim Musik
Reference: IMCD 107
Description: German-born but a Swedish resident from 1847, Berens' set of string trios dates from 1871. Firmly in the Schumann-Brahms lineage, they are so well balanced as to suggest a string quartet. At 82:32, this may be the longest CD we've yet come across, so no complaints about total timing here!
