Press

“A great new recording of some of Schubert’s most inspired piano duets Inspiration flourishes under pressure. He must have known that he had limited time left to him, for the first three works here come from the miraculous last year of Schubert’s life 1828). . . [Richter and Britten give] treasurable performances of course, but this new recording yields nothing to them in terms of spontaneity and the rapt intimacy so essential to Hausmusik of this kind. . . [Tong & Hasegawa] have been given a superlative recorded sound (Champs Hill, Coldwaltham in Sussex) which captures in a realistic way their rich, cushioned tone, one that caresses the ears whether in such dramatic passages as the Fantasie’s Allegro or the haunting lyricism of D813’s third variation.”
