180g Virgin Vinyl High Quality Pressing! Pure Analogue
Anyone who takes an interest in Schubert's late works will sooner or later come
across cliché-like interpretations of his music that have been associated with a
foreboding of his early death. Robert Schumann on the other hand was more
objective when he looked at the score of Schubert's two great Piano Trios: he
characterized that in E flat Major as effectual, masculine and dramatic, and the
sister work in B flat Major as languishing, feminine and lyrical. Both
masterpieces have in common highly varied movements, which must be approached
with great insight, a deeply felt sustained lyricism, and a courageous approach
as regards the bold themes. That this recording with the Beaux Arts Trio has
taken on a benchmark status might well lie in the fact that the three musicians
amalgamate romantic fire with analytical aplomb which results in Schubert pure.
With their non-stop ebb and flow of melodies, wonderfully indulgent sound
coloring and a fiery tour de force through the miraculously winding harmonic
paths, the Beaux Arts Trio prove themselves to be among the very best of all
Having taken their final bow at a concert in Leipzig in September 2009 after 54
years, the time is certainly ripe for an audiophile re-release of this superb
recording from the Beaux Arts Trio.
