Notes & Reviews:

"The first movement (Overture: Modere) runs some fourteen minutes - longer than any two of Bruch's pieces together! - yet the musical argument is cogent, the development of the themes expansive and logical. The second movement (Divertissement: Vif et anime), a scintillating scherzo decked out with piano runs (think Saint-Saens), offers the cello, pizzicato, to reinforce the piano, a rare use in chamber music of a primarily orchestral effect. At the start of the succeeding Chant elegiaque, the clarinet intones a broad melody in pensive syncopations; the cello picks up the forward impulse, and the writing grows increasingly impassioned, leading to an ardent climax by cello and clarinet (in octaves rather than in unison, thus conveniently avoiding the previously cited tuning hazard). The Anime finale is buoyant, with the motto theme imaginatively repackaged on its return. Here, too, the Amici's performance is most persuasive.The engineering is ideal for this sort of project - you don't notice it, yet everything sounds beautiful. There's plenty to enjoy here, and at minimal cost, besides." -MusicWeb International
