Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
This is my first opportunity to hear Benjamin Schmid performing with his wife, Ariane Haering. Schmid is a very good violinist, and it turns out that his wife is a very good pianist. The interesting work here is Franz Liszt's Grand Duo Concertant, which was composed around 1835 with the violin virtuoso Charles- Philippe Lafont, to be revised in 1849 and finally published in 1852 with Liszt cited as composer and Lafont as editor. The duo is actually a set of variations on Lafont's song 'The Sailor'. Schmid acquits himself with his customary virtuosity, and Haering is impressive too.

Benjamin Schmid's recordings have been awarded the Deutsche Schallplattenpreis, the Echo Klassik music prize, Grammophone Editor's Choice and Strad Selection. On his first album for the TwoPianists label, Benjamin teams up with his duo and life partner, Ariane Haering in a program representing not only the romantic duo but also the true collaborations of composer and performer. Franz Liszt's Grand Duo Concertant is recorded alongside his Consolation no.3 with both works benefiting from the help of others (M. Lafont and Nathan Milstein). Frank Bridge's Sonata for Violin and Piano (1904) is another work that was completed by another, in this case Paul Hindmarsch. Grieg's Third violin sonata closes this enchanting CD - the most popular and the most striking in conception of the composer's catalog for the medium.
