One of the leading members of the Munich School, most famously represented by Richard Strauss, Ludwig Thuille was a prolific composer whose Sextet today remains the best known of his many chamber works. Influenced by Rheinberger, Liszt and Wagner, Thuille’s Sextet also recalls Brahms’s deft mastery, particularly with regard to his arching melodies, scrupulous handling of instrumental textures and technical skill. His second Piano Quintet, likewise notable for its formal mastery and dramatic contrasts, boasts many passages of thrilling intensity, counterpoint and surging lyricism.


   




Review By Zach Carstensen,The Gathering Note,June 2010

Thuille’s Sextet suffers from the same convoluted style that makes the quintet such a difficult piece for audiences to enjoy or musicians to play. Both groups find their way through Thuille’s thicket of notes, making sense of the pieces in spite of the composer.

Review By Luca Segalla,Musica,December 2009

Dita d’acciaio e tocco incisivo, Gianluca Luisi dispone di un grande volume di suono e offre un fraseggio scolpito con gesti robusti sulla tastiera del suo Bösendorfer Imperial, pianoforte che rappresenta sempre una gioia per le orecchie. Sotto questo aspetto i lisztiani tre Grandi Studi da Paganini affrontati nel primo dei due CD pubblicati dalla Naxos sono un’interpretazione esemplare, anche in virtù della buona qualità tecnica della registrazione. Certo, Luisi non è un virtuoso-monstre come Hamelin o come il Carlo Grante di qualche anno fa, però i suoi Studi da Paganini temono pochi confronti.

Review By Andrea Bedetti,guide.supereva.it,September 2009

Un esponente della scuola di Monaco

Quando si pensa alla cosiddetta “scuola di Monaco”, il movimento musicale influenzato dall’opera di Franz Liszt, Richard Wagner e Joseph Gabriel Rheinberger, che operò tra la fine del XIX secolo e l’inizio di quello successivo, non può che venire in mente il nome di Richard Strauss.

Review By Giv Cornfield,The New Recordings, Cliffs Classics,September 2009

I recall being introduced to Thuille’s very Brahmsian-sounding Sextet for piano and winds by Vernon Duke, founder of the Society for Forgotten Music (SFM). The LP recording we made at the time (1972) was a ‘first’, and created quite a stir among critics. This new recording is excellent in every respect, and the companion work is no less impressive. Pianist Gianluca Luisi is a powerhouse pianist, and both chamber ensembles are finely attuned to the late-Romantic idiom.
