They have the soul of this music, like the Budapest Quartet with Horszowski have in their Trout.

Ruppert aptly describes this piece as the work of a "singing hero" or of a "Troubador", a figure many others have used to describe Schubert and his music.
Robin Friedman
The combination of father and daughter, who are both superb well known musicians, in this recording brings a very special quality to the music.

Franz Schubert composed six important works for violin and piano. The three earliest of these are sonatinas, D.384,385, and 408, composed when Schubert was 19. Schubert's later three works are included on this budget -priced CD on Arte Nova performed by the father and daughter team of Claude Frank, piano and Pamela Frank, violin. The recording dates from 1996, but it was released in its present format in 2005. The Franks have both had outstanding recording careers, separately and together. Claude Frank has made a renowned recording of the Beethoven piano sonatas, also available on a budget-priced Arte Nova set. Pamela Frank has recorded the Mozart violin concertos with David Zinman. Together, the Franks have recorded Beethoven's complete sonatas for violin and piano in addition to this CD.

The Franks play these Schubert works with lyricism and intimacy. Father and daughter are attuned to each other. Pamela Frank plays with a lightness of touch that still responds to the passion of the music. The music and the performance offers a feeling of music-making in the privacy of the home. The three works on this CD date from just after the early sonatinas to music composed near the end of Schubert's life. In listening to these pieces I learned a great deal from Frank Ruppert's creatively idiosyncratic interpretation of Schubert in his recent book, "Franz Schubert and the Rose Cross Mystery" (2008) Ruppert tries to relate Schubert's music to mystical tradition. He also tries to relate each of Schubert's major instrumental works, including the three pieces on this CD, to the poetry that Schubert set in songs at the time that each work was composed.

The highlight of this recording is the Fantasy in C major, D934, one of the great works Schubert composed near the end of his life.

The more this recording is heard, the more it reveals an absolute mastery of the music. The Franks present us with a superb and incandescent father-daughter Schubertiad. They are so united in their common musical goals that they bring a life and poignant insight into this rare Schubert that is absolutely magnificent. Playing with ultimate levels of commitment and understanding, they leave other recordings of these works in the shade. Claude and Pamela Frank are supremely gifted musicians with a common sensitivity, intelligence and aesthetic that bring Schubert's music for violin and piano to life in a uniquely beautiful, loving way.

Their rendering of the Fantasia in C D.934 is exquisitely spiritual, intensely intimate - overwhelming! There's a very real sense of being there with them as they play this music with inspiration from the inside out. It's that probing and personal, that introspective. They maintain absolute focus and continuity at all times. When they get to the Sei mir gegrust moment I feel like I'm going to pass out and my heart will burst.

Barenboim and Stern sound like automatons by comparison - phoning it in.... but with class. Their performance seems to lack soul and insight, or enthusiasm, and it feels like they really don't care very much or aren't terribly excited by the music. They are such great musicians, thought, that even their auto-pilot (this is an exaggeration) is significant.

Resembling the Franks in their comprehension and appreciation of this music, Goldberg and Lupu are closer to the honorable, committed, whole cloth performance that Schubert deserves.

If you have never listened to Schubert this would be a wonderful place to start. The music is beautiful. The combination of father and daughter, who are both superb well known musicians, in this recording brings a very special quality to the music. Listening to music like this will make your soul feel wonderful. It costs only a few dollars. You have very little to lose and I think you will love it.

Schubert composed four violin sonatas with piano accompaniment, all when he was 19 or 20. The first three were published as "sonatinas" although they are full-blown sonatas. The fourth (D 574), performed here by the father-daughter duo Claude and Pamela Frank, is probably the best of these early sonatas. They all show the influence of Mozart and Haydn, and early Beethoven a little bit, but they also have some of Schubert's unique characteristics, such as unusual key relationships and abrupt transitions. Otherwise, this sonata follows the classical sonata format, although the second movement is a scherzo and the third an andantino. The Franks acquit themselves well in this work; their performance is a sensitive one, and the balance between violin and piano in this piece is ideal.

The Rondo Brilliant (D 895) was composed in 1826 as a showpiece for a very talented young Czech violinist, Josef Slavik. It consists of two parts: a portentous introduction followed by an extended lively section with gypsy overtones. It was one of the very few instrumental works published during Schubert's lifetime. Musically, it's an impressive piece written in Schubert's late style, and it presents plenty of challenge for the violinist. The Frank duo give it a fine performance, although I slightly prefer the one by Alexander Schneider, with Peter Serkin on the piano, because it's a bit livelier and emphasizes the gypsy element.

The Fantasy in C (D 934) is an unusual work, but one of Schubert's greatest. It dates from l827 and was also written for violinist Slavik. Both the violin and piano parts are quite challenging. The piece is in four, or maybe five, sections, but they're tied together without a break in much the same fashion as the later Fantasy in F-minor for piano duo.
