Product Description

Bernard Shaw said Goetz's Symphony was the greatest since Beethoven, blithely brushing aside Schubert, Schumann, Mendelssohn, and Brahms. Goetz wasn't that good (and Shaw wasn't that good a music critic), but he showed a great deal of promise before his death at 36. The way Goetz develops his material is not compelling, but his tuneful romantic style can be very appealing, especially in these fine performances by a group of experienced chamber players. This set could have been more attractive if it offered more than 95 minutes of music on two full-priced CDs. But the analog recordings from the mid-'70s still sound excellent. --Leslie Gerber

As in his piano music, I find the wistful, German-born composer Hermann Gustav Goetz [1840-1876] at his most original, unassuming, melodic and nostalgic in these four chamber works that, from simplest to complex, form his sole output. And, as in his piano music, again, we find a "pure" Goetz with scarcely a hint of derivation in any direction. How these beautiful works languished for over one hundred years simply boggles the mind; their CD incarnation, then, is cause to rejoice, especially in performances like these, so attuned to the Goetz spirit, the joy, the melancholy, the romance and tragedy.

How could one not fall instantly in love with the Piano Quartet in E, Op. 6 (1867)? The opening theme of the first movement (7:57), alone, is glorious--- it soars, leading us directly into a secondary development whose lyricism plunges straight to our heart; throughout, Goetz intertwines these melodies hauntingly. The following Langsam (11:06), filled with a languid, aching romanticism (so akin to the composer's more intimate works), is probably one of the most moving you will have heard in a long, long time. Engaging, too, is its seque into the Scherzo (4:53), without pause. This ingenious co-joining is so graced, I can't blame Goetz for allowing his emotions to flood out. And with another brilliant stroke, the composer begins the Sehr langsam finale (8:31), not in merriment, but with yet another heart-rending theme that wrings us dry before breaking out in songful elation.

The Three Easy Pieces for Violin and Piano of 1863, Op. 2 (12:07), are fairly lightweight works, but are nonetheless attractive "chips" from the Goetz workbench, especially the endearing "Romanze."

The Piano Trio in G Minor, Op.
