Editorial Reviews

Product Description

It is a sign of great artistry when performers can take a composer's lesser works and make them compelling. That Fischer and Helmchen have done so with Schubert's modest violin and piano works to such joyous effect is remarkable. The revelation comes when Fischer joins Helmchen at the piano in the sublime Fantasia.

Review

Violinist Julia Fischer and pianist Martin Helmchen continue their series of Schubert's music for the two instruments with this second issue featuring the Sonata D. 574 and Fantasia D. 934, as well as the Fantasia for Piano Duet D. 940 in which Fischer plays the second piano part, probably the only time we'll ever hear her at the keyboard. Will there be a Volume III? No indication, but doubtless there are other works of Schubert that might fit into this fine series. -- Classical CD Review.com, May 2010

By Warren Harris on June 25, 2010
Format: Audio CD
Franz Schubert was a master tunesmith, and the melodies are so friendly to the ear and approachable that the difficulty inherent in bringing this music to life is frequently glossed over. Julia Fischer and Martin Helmchen clearly demonstrate what is possible when Schubert's Violin and Piano duos are given the treatment they deserve.

All of the pieces on this disc are played as though the listener is privy to a discussion between two old and dear friends, the violin and piano in the first two pieces, and two pianos in the last piece. The second piece (D.934) is particularly sensitively played, each instrument responding to what the other has to say, and doing so tenderly and expressively. Similarly, the two pianos in the F minor Fantasia blend and pull apart, and playfully come back together again. This is wonderful music, expertly performed. And the recording quality of the Super Audio CD is simply amazing. I very much enjoyed this recording. Highly recommended!
