The complete quartets of Johannes Brahms Recorded by memory, and the G Major viola quintet with Roger Tapping, Brahms by Heart was recorded at the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall by Judith Sherman.

Hailed by Strings Magazine as "The recording contributes to the feeling of being inside the music, indivisible from the beauty of the playing; there is wonderful crunch on the violist’s and cellist’s bottom strings, and the violins sing with radiant freedom." (full review here).

Strad Magazine says "An outstanding set" and "In the Chiara players’ skilled hands, the brooding opening Allegro of the C minor Quartet takes on an almost choreographic sense of emotional narrative." (full review here).
