Editorial Reviews

A miraculous find in the castle Vilain XIIII in Leut resulted in a wonderfully ambitious project: the recording of the Schubert's complete piano works on an original Nannette Streicher fortepiano from 1826. Given that there are only a dozen or so of these instruments known to exist worldwide - many are shut away in museums and so not playable - this is a truly unique project. The Vilain XIIII s six-octave straight-strung Streicher has an intimate sound with precise articulation and a transparent bass register that is perfectly suited to the music of the Viennese early Romantics - Beethoven and especially Schubert. With this release, Etcetera begins a new series of six 2CD sets in which Jan Vermeulen will reveal for us a new and groundbreaking Schubert sound.

Fortepianist Jan Vermeulen studied in Brussels with André de Groote. He then began an impressive career as a soloist and chamber musician in Belgium, as well as abroad. His performances are marked by a constant search for authenticity with historically grounded and well-considered interpretations of the classical, romantic and impressionist repertoire. To this end, he performs piano music on period instruments, mainly from his own private collection. He is a member of The Tröndlin Ensemble and works with Paul Dombrecht,Wieland Kuijken, Florian Heyerick and a wide range of vocal artists, such as soprano Anne Cambier.

Format: Audio CD
Let me start by saying that I despise the harpsichord and typically dislike the fortepiano, preferring the modern grand piano. That said, Paul Lewis has some fantastic piano recordings of Schubert's great sonatas on the audiophile-quality Harmonia Mundi label. These being some of my favorite sonatas from the classical era, I thought it would be interesting to own two sets, the other on my sometimes-dreaded fortepiano.

I'm thrilled that I gave it chance, as Vermeulen evidently found an 1826 Nannette Streicher Fortepiano literally buried in the dust and had it lovingly restored into what is truly a magical sounding instrument for these beautiful sonatas. Kudos to Vermeulen for sensitive performances and Etcetera for the wonderful recorded sound. There are six volumes, all keepers!
