Schubert & Schumann: Quintets

Schubert & Schumann: Quintets


Schubert:

String Quintet in C major, D956

Lynn Harrell (cello)

Schumann:

Piano Quintet in E flat major, Op. 44

James Levine (piano)


What a treat! Two of the most magnificent chamber music compositions ever written - the Schubert String Quintet in C major and the Schumann Piano Quintet in E major - combined on to one SACD.

It is not known when exactly Schubert wrote his string quintet. He mentions the composition in a letter to his publisher dated less than seven weeks prior to his untimely death. This is the only clue as to the work’s period of composition. Therefore, it can be safely assumed that it is one of the last works he ever composed. One may also assume he himself never heard it being performed: almost unimaginable, if one really thinks about it.

After a legal battle with his piano teacher Friedrich Wieck, father to his beloved Clara Wieck, Robert Schumann and Clara finally gained the right to marry on 12 September 1840. The first years of their marriage were the happiest of Schumann’s life, which translated to an outburst of musical creativity. While until then Schumann wrote almost exclusively for piano solo, he then started to widen his scope. Schumann wrote a large number of masterpieces within a period of just four to five years, varying from his famous song cycles (Liederkreis Op. 39, Frauenliebe und -leben and Dichterliebe) to his first symphony, a piano concerto and string quartets to the piano quintet which was written for his young bride. Unlike Schubert and his string quintet, Schumann must have heard his piano quintet often during his lifetime, as Clara, delighted with the masterpiece dedicated to her, performed it regularly to the public.

This release as part of PENTATONE’s REMASTERED CLASSICS series gives us the chance to hear these masterpieces as often as we would like, in high resolution sound quality and performed by the renowned James Levine, Lynn Harrell and the LaSalle Quartet.

Tchaikovsky: Manfred Symphony and other works

Tchaikovsky: Manfred Symphony and other works


Tchaikovsky:

Manfred Symphony, Op. 58

Hamlet - Fantasy overture, Op. 67

Romeo & Juliet - Fantasy Overture

Francesca da Rimini, Op. 32

Variations on a Rococo Theme, Op. 33

Lynn Harrell (cello)

Pezzo capriccioso, Op. 62 for cello & orchestra (or cello & piano)


In addition to recording the six Tchaikovsky symphonies for Decca with the Vienna Philharmonic, Lorin Maazel also recorded the ‘Manfred’ – a recording often singled out as one of the best made of this symphony, as well as three of the tone poems based on literary legends, two Shakespearian (Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet), one Dante (the thrilling Francesca da Rimini). The latter was recorded as part of Decca’s ‘Phase 4’ series. This all-Tchaikovsky 2CD set is completed with two of the composer’s works for cello, the Rococo Variations and the Pezzo capriccioso, both receiving their first international release on CD.

“Thrilling highly-charged accounts of some of Tchaikovsky's darkest music. Harrell's elegant Rococo Variations provides welcome light at the end of the tunnel.” BBC Music Magazine, April 2014 *****

“Tchaikovsky’s Manfred Symphony has had precious few great recordings; luckily this is one of them … The finale has all the excitement, energy and crackerjack rhythmic thrust needed to make it really fly … a red-hot performance of Tchaikovsky’s Hamlet” Classics Today

“Where excitement is concerned, there is no lack at all” Gramophone Magazine

Lynn Harrell (cello) & Bruno Canino (piano)

As he explains in his liner notes for this CD, Lynn Harrell uses the voice as his point of departure for this collection of encores. They are largely reflective pieces, with a bit of fun such as the unfairly forgotten Glazunov Spanish Serenade thrown in for good measure, and this once popular disc now makes a return to the catalogue, at budget price.
