Notes & Reviews:

Once again the Heinrich Albert Duo has taken on something very special. Antoine de Lhoyer's duos combine a sovereign command of musical convention around 1800 with extraordinarily individual expression, especially enhanced by what were very progressive harmonic structures precisely for guitar music.

Lhoyer was of course familiar with the masterpieces by models such as Fernando Sor and Mauro Giuliani, both of whom are much better known today. His sonata movements contain sophisticatedly constructed development sections, and in the middle movements harmonic modulations unique in their time and far transcending the gallant tone of his contemporaries.

The waltzes included by the Heinrich Albert Duo on their recording of the great duo sonatas have an enchanting charm. Each one of them is a delightful character piece with its own individual appeal, far removed from the standard fare then prevailing as salon entertainment. A genuine discovery!
