Notes and Editorial Reviews

"This recording called “Duos from the Marlboro Music Festival” has duets from three decades of performances at Marlboro, beginning in 1968 with the 27-year-old Paula Robison and the 65-year-old Rudolf Serkin playing the only piece of 19th-century music for flute and piano written by a major composer. Their reading of this set of variations on 'Trockne Blumen' from “Schone Mullerin*P* is a real treasure. Robison is at her most vocal as well as in her best technical form, and Serkin sounds happy to have such a responsive and sensitive musical partner for his Schubertian magic.

The Prokofieff Sonata for Two Violins is from a concert given in 1978. Daniel Phillips and Peter Zazofsky match one another so well that I cannot
Read more tell who is playing which part. They give the piece a real sense of depth, especially in II where there seem to be a multitude of voices coming from all directions out of only two violins."
