Notes & Reviews:

This Pentatone combines two of its best-selling recordings, Franz Schubert: Complete Works for Violin and Piano Volume one and two into a collector's edition, double Super Audio-CD set. The recordings by these two brilliant German artists, Julia Fischer and Martin Helmchen - which were originally launched in in 2009 (Vol. 1) and 2010 (Vol. 2) - were remarkably successful from both a critical and a commercial standpoint. The release uniquely features Fischer as a pianist in the four-hand piece, Fantasia for Piano Duet D. 940.

Gramophone Magazine, June 2015
Playful but utterly focused... Fischer/Helmchen conjure a lustrously haloed quality.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
This is a two-disc reissue of the two volumes of Schubert's works for violin and piano that Fischer and Helmchen recorded in 2009. I reviewed the first volume (J/F 2010) and found the reading of the mature Rondo Brilliant preferable to the sonatinas. Four years later I feel exactly the same way. The A-major Duo, which begins the second volume, is excellent. Fischer's solid technique and sweet sound and Helmchen's articulation and careful and natural phrase-shaping allow Schubert's music to do its magic. The Fantasia, one of the most difficult pieces in the literature, is also impressive, particularly the sound of the piano in II. The big treat for me here is the magical Fantasia in F minor, D. 940, for piano four hands. Fischer is a wonderful pianist, and I imagine that it's kind of like a vacation for her to swim in Schubert's rarefied pianistic waters, particularly with such excellent company. I'm so glad that Fischer and Helmchen gave us this wonderful bonus.
