The two works for piano trio included here represent extreme points in Schubert’s career as a composer. The Sonatensatz, a sonata movement, was written in 1812, while Schubert was still at school. The second of his two completed piano trios, D. 929, dates from 1827 and was played at the first and only public concert of Schubert’s compositions during his lifetime. While the Sonatensatz shows promise, at the very least, the Piano Trio in E flat major shows this promise fully realized.


Review By Giv Cornfield,The New Recordings, Cliffs Classics,August 2006

Though we may be in the midst of a hot summer, this disc is like a breath of fresh spring air. The music is Schubert at his best: one lovely melody running into another like a string of pearls. One can sense the joy that these wonderful musicians experience as they play this masterpiece of the chamber repertoire. Good taste and virtuosity abound, and the sparklingly live recording is a joy to hear.
