Notes & Reviews:

SACD Hybrid/ Stereo & Multi-channel/ DSD

This disc contains pieces from both the beginning and the end of Strauss' career. A master of the lyrical stage, Strauss is not known for his chamber music. However, before he was twenty-one, he had already composed two piano trios, a string quartet, a cello sonata and a piano quartet. All these compositions were worthy of a young prodigy. In 1940, he composed the Sextet for his opera Capriccio. Performed here by the Prazák Quartet, the juxtaposition of these works fully illustrates the art of this post-romantic composer.
