Are you meaning the Brahms Sonatas or Quintet? Stoltman's recording of the
Sonatas is an important recording to have, as is David Shifrin's and
Franklin Cohen's. I haven't heard Leister play the Sonatas, but I have
heard him play the Quintet - which I enjoy (as I also do Shifrin's). I
know Johnathan Cohler has recorded the Sonatas and has attracted somewhat
of a following.

Best wishes,
