 Excellent! March 3, 2013 By Henry S. (Springfield, VA) See All My Reviews "CPO has done it again, with a recording that truly impresses. On this intriguing disk will be found 3 works whose structures may strike some as slightly unorthodox: a piano quintet with a double bass substituting for a second viola, a piano sextet (piano plus string quintet), and a sextet scored for piano, harp, clarinet, bassoon, horn,and double bass. The piano quintet features an exquisite piano role powerfully overlaid on a suave,velvety string accompaniment- great music! In the piano sextet, the enhanced size of the ensemble produces a near symphonic effect in texture and depth of sound. Finally, the sextet for various instruments is an entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable chamber music excursion using the compositional doctrines of the Classical era. All in all, this recording can be summed up in two words: 'Wonderful stuff!' The Ensemble Concertant Frankfurt is a first class chamber music group, and it plays with precision and commitment throughout. With CPO's unbeatable audio engineering providing state of the art sound, this comes as close to a 'Must Have' chamber music recording as anything I have come across in quite a while. Highest recommendations." Report Abuse
