Notes & Reviews:

Franz Schubert's gift for songwriting transfers into the lyrical sensitivities in his instrumental music. Composed for himself and friends to play at musical evenings, the brilliant Rondo, D. 608 shares the musical burden equally between the parts. The Sonata for Piano Duet, D. 617 echoes the spirit of Mozart and was written for the daughters of Count Esterházy, the Six Grandes Marches et Trios having their place in the ballroom. Of these Nos. 2 and 3 can be found in Vol. 5 (8570354), which was a Gramophone 'Editor's Choice'.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
The marches are big works, averaging nearly 10 minutes each. I was especially taken with the brilliance and virtuosity on display in the final one. Humphreys and Markham play this music on a modern Steinway with precise ensemble. The booklet notes are quite good and also in small print. Recorded sound is quite good.
