Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This program offers a fairly happy visage of the composer—it is certainly not the most tortured Schubert!

"Paradoxically, Schubert's best-known work for cello is the 'Arpeggione' Sonata. A central work in our repertoire, and one of the most difficult, it naturally has its place here. I chose to transcribe the Sonatina No. 1 in D major for, even though written for the violin, it is no less adapted to the cello than the 'Arpeggione'. Moreover, on the instrumental level, it is not so remote from the Trio No. 1. In its bright key of D major, the Sonatina is a joyful work. This programme thus offers us a fairly happy visage of the composer. In any case, it is not the most tortured Schubert. The Trio in B flat is a brilliant work that leaves much room for heroism, with extraordinary rhythmic energy and vivace. A Schubert who, also, gives opportunities for virtuosity and instrumental pleasure."-Marc Coppey

"The playing of the three artists is first-rate, and it is good that the longest and most inspired work, and the only one wherein we hear all of them playing together, is Schubert's Piano Trio No. 1 in B flat major" -International Record Review
