Notes & Reviews:

A fascinating and fun album with important elements. This recording includes the world premiere of the piano duet version of Schubert's 'Death and the Maiden' Quartet, arranged by Robert Franz, the great lieder composer; the disc celebrates the 200th anniversary of his death. Even more intrigingly, we have the first ever completed recording of Schubert's 'Unfinished' Symphony in a ne complete four movement performing edition for piano duet. The first two movements arranged by Schubert's friend Huttenbrenner, the thrid completed from Schubert's part-finished work by Anthony Goldstone, and the fourth using the Rosamunde Entr'acte (usually thought be the symphony's intended finale), arranged by Friedrich Hermann. Quite unique!
