Notes and Editorial Reviews

The importance of this set cannot be overstated. First released on seven separate albums by Olympia, it launched the international reputation of Anthony Goldstone and Caroline Clemmow as one of the world’s foremost duos, and it remains the only complete recording of Schubert’s original duet compositions including many little-known masterpieces and one Polonaise completed by Goldstone from Schubert’s unfinished manuscript. Each album concludes with a Polonaise encore written by Schumann, inspired by Schubert. The set represents the whole stretch of Schubert’s output from D. 1 to D. 968. The performances are superb, exhilarating and perfectly integrated: the husband and wife team really do play like one person with four hands. Tragically, Read more Anthony Goldstone died on January 2, 2017 while the design work of this set was being finalized, and did not live to see the reissue of this marvelous collection, repackaged and remastered as a complete set.
