Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine
This little 58-minute Schubertiad a la francaise makes a very good case for the viola as a Schubertian soulmate par excellence... Piau's irresistably radiant soprano, together with the viola... transforms the music's pastoral into a haunting evocation of the poignant exhilaration of mortality.

Reviews

The song, not the singer
Purists may cringe at classical music in transcription; I enjoy hearing variations on a theme which remains available in the original, after all. Written for an (extinct) instrument something like a bowed guitar, Schubert's "Arpeggione sonata" is usually played by cello and piano. Antoine Tamestit takes the solo part on viola here, putting the melody in a range more like the human voice. That's not really a transcription, but for the remainder of the disc, he and pianist Markus Hadulla give us the composer's lieder minus the voice, until soprano Sandrine Piau appears on the final two tracks. (The viola replaces the clarinet in "Der Hirt auf dem Felsen," acting more as a duet partner than an obbligato instrument.) Interestingly, lyrics are included for all the songs, even the ones not actually "sung."
