Notes & Reviews:

This collection of performances from the Marlboro Music Festival spans some thirty-five years. This recording of Schubert's flute and piano duo on 'Trock'ne Blumen' has only been issued previously on a long out of print Marlboro Recording Society LP. The performance (from 1968) features the young flautist, Paula Robison, matched with the legendary pianist, and then artistic director of Marlboro, Rudolf Serkin. Sergei Prokofiev's 'Sonata for Two Violins,' from a 1978 performance, matches two brilliant young violinists - Daniel Phillips and Peter Zazofsky. Phillips and Zazofsky went on to become members of the Orion and Muir String Quartets respectively, and are heard in a bracing reading of this minor masterpiece. The last work on this recording is the newest - Leon Kirchner's 'Duo No. 2' for violin and piano, in its premiere recording. Commissioned in memory of the violinist Felix Galimir, a long-time participant at Marlboro, this impassioned composition is given a reading of brilliant intensity by violinist Ida Levin and pianist, Jeremy Denk.
