Product Description

Amazon.com

Schubert's two piano trios are the products of his last years when, knowing that he was ill and dying, he still managed to produce dozens of songs and chamber music masterpieces, as well as pursue counterpoint studies and make plans for further orchestral and stage works. Add to this the earlier String Trio and a couple of miscellaneous single movements, and his output in "trio" form is complete. Both of the piano trios are typically large works, generously stuffed with first-rate tunes, some of which you may recognize without knowing exactly where they came from. These excellent performances at a "twofer" price offer the most convenient and cost effective way to get to know this marvelous music. --David Hurwitz

I listen to this album all the time on repeat.
Tyson Underwood
Schubert lovers may be drawn to this CD because of the Beaux Art trio's fame, but the best performance on the CD is the Grumiaux trio's String trio in B flat.
Kathleen McSharry
For the quality of performance you get it's a bargain.

There just doesn't seem to be quite the equal for their interpretations of the classical repertoire, but even among the numerous remarkable recordings the Beaux Arts Trio has produced, this gorgeous rendering of Schubert decisively stands out.
Trio No.1 in B flat Major is my favourite pick, with all of its very expansive movements (length-wise, rather than musically, which often make the piece sound boring in lesser hands) treated with extremely delicate and tasteful pacings. One more thing that is very noticeable is the lyricism of the cello tone that almost resembles that of a human voice; it is so light and transparent, as perfectly exhibited in the second movement of the Trio No.1, that at times it could be mistaken for violin.
This is one Schubert recording you should not miss, and I actually think I like this more than the overplayed (although very much deservedly) Trout Quintet. Enjoy!

The Grumiaux Trio and the Beaux Arts trio are highly respected groups in the domain of chamber music and rank as highly as groups such as the Guarneri Quartet. These earlier performances of Schubert are exquisite in their execution and the only defect here is perhaps a slightly reduced sound quality than your typical contemporary performances due to its age. This is barely noticeable however and this CD is really a steal for the price.

The trios of Schubert are a good way of exploring various periods of his life in which he composed drastically different arrangements. His Piano Trio D. 28 is a good example of his foundations in Mozart and early Beethoven until you reach his Piano Trio D. 929 (performed often in Kurbrick's 'Barry Lyndon') where Schubert explores much more on impressionistic themes than romantic ones. Such themes were only pursued later by composers such as Brahms and Schumann. Liszt's romanticism was also stongly influenced by both Beethoven and Schubert. Of the performances I really have nothing to say as they are simply flawless and there are few I could compare. The sound has some disadvantages but not really significant ones.

This is really a magnificent performance giving you Schubert's complete trios on two CDs. For the quality of performance you get it's a bargain. I am glad I got it as it was worth every dollar.

Straight off, the five stars are for the two major works of this double CD. They stand on a higher plane than four secondary pieces also included in the set. The B flat and E flat piano trios are among Schubert's best chamber music compositions; they don't (can't) reach the peaks of his C major string quintet, but then nothing else in chamber music does except Beethoven's late quartets. Robert Schumann praised both works. Of the B flat trio he wrote that it made "the troubles of our human existence disappear and all the world is fresh and bright again." And in reviewing Mendelssohn's D minor piano trio he said it was "the master trio of the age, as were the B flat and D major trios of Beethoven and the E flat trio of Schubert in their times."

Here then is one trio that brightens our lives and another that was the master trio of its time!

From the first movement's confident opening theme to the finale's outpouring of cheer, the B flat trio offers beguiling rhythms -- just listen to the piano's pearly right hand notes -- and beautifully worked out melodies. In the second movement the cello introduces the lyrical first theme; when the violin joins in, the melody becomes an exquisite duet sung by the strings, accompanied softly by the piano. Such music doesn't play itself. It takes understanding and perfect ensemble to bring it off, and Beaux Arts Trio typically rises to the occasion. The third movement is a sprightly scherzo; its middle section, an airy waltz that reminds us of Schubert's Viennese bonds. To cap it all, the finale presents one joyful expression of three wonderful players making music.

Beaux Arts Trio's accomplished performance continues in the E flat trio -- an intricate work that's rhythmically vital and rich in melodic material.

I had the same problem as 6/8/10 reviewer.
First ordered via Amazon in 2/10. Jewel case's back cover, and Disc 1's label, said Disc 1 contained 2 string trios and 1 piano trio -- exactly what I wanted (along with Disc 2). Alas, my Disc 1 contained 2 symphonies. Disc 2 was fine.
So I ordered again, in 4/10, from a different Amazon seller. And again Disc 1 was defective -- it had exactly the same problem as Disc 1 in my first order.
Obviously there were some production problems re Philips 438700 Schubert: Complete Trios! But presumably Philips made some non-defective 438700's.
So I considered re-ordering again. But then decided I wasn't ready to go through more hassles of returns and refunds or replacements.
So I emailed Decca (took over Philips) for help. But Decca never replied. Thanks, Decca.

I wonder if anybody knows how I can get a non-defective 438700?

And perhaps Amazon should consider taking 438700 off its market?

Schubert lovers may be drawn to this CD because of the Beaux Art trio's fame, but the best performance on the CD is the Grumiaux trio's String trio in B flat. Arthur Grumiaux's artistry on the violin raises this trio to sumblime heights. His phrasing and tone are exquisite and transport the listener to a place out of time.
The Beaux Art trio's performance is quite good, but they take second place to the incomparable Grumiaux.
