Make Way for 'The Archduke'

As I may have mentioned (two or three times), the slow movement of The Archduke trio is almost my favorite Beethoven piece, if not most beautiful of all.  Recently discovered this historic version, more adagio than andante,  not to be missed, with Casals, an extraordinary Vegh, and Horszowski. In our new book, Jeremy Denk calls this his favorite piece of music, "the holiest of the holy."
