A great tribute to the music of this under-appreciated composer.
SCHUBERT: The Piano Trios; Arpeggione Sonata in A Minor; Notturno in E-flat Major – Kalichstein, p./ Laredo, violin/ Robinson, cello – Bridge (2 CDs)
“Scintillating” serves as an appropriate epithet for this entire set devoted to Schubert’s piano trios and assembled chamber works, played with ardor and informed intellect in every bar.
Moving, beautiful music from a surprising source.
Music mostly from Giuliani’s second creative period; attractive pieces attractively played and recorded.
