Notes & Reviews:

Schubert's piano works are some of the most precious gems of the repertoire. Mindful of this, Jeremy Menuhin and his partner Mookie Lee-Menuhin approach this deep and somber music, which only approaches anything cheerful or lighthearted at rare moments, with great sensitivity. With the Menuhins, the music breathes, allowing the endless melodies and long musical lines of works like the F-minor Fantasy to unfold. An exciting new discovery is the original piano transcription, by Yehudi Menuhin's son, of the slow movement from the "Death and the Maiden" string quartet. The two fabulous pianists are presenting it here in a world premiere recording.
