Notes and Editorial Reviews

A virile performance of what is arguably Schubert’s greatest chamber work. Their style is direct with no mannerisms whatsoever. There is a depth of concentration conveyed in every bar. The finale is fresh and rustic-sounding . In the slow movement the players adopt the slowest possible adagio, the inner tension of which holds one breathless through hushed pianissimos of the most intense beauty. This is a clear first bargain choice, and there are few premium-priced discs which approach let alone match its intensity.
