Notes and Editorial Reviews

The second of Schubert's sublime Piano Trios. Includes both the initial and the revised published versions of the last movement, Allegro moderato. The Mozartean Players "epitomize cutting-edge style, with lively tempos, pertinent, enhancing ornamentation and the rhythmic freedom we had until recent years mistakenly considered appropriate only to music of the Romantic era."
