Kuhlau: Piano Quartets Nos. 1 & 2


Kuhlau:

Piano Quartet No. 1 in C minor, Op. 32

Piano Quartet No. 2 in A major, Op. 50


Copenhagen Piano Quartet

Friedrich Kuhlau was the most cosmopolitan personality in Danish music at the beginning of the 19th century. A creative, forward-looking and extremely productive composer, he rarely let his pen lie idle. The two piano quartets recorded on this CD by the young Copenhagen Piano Quartet are major works from the composer’s most artistically fertile decade, besides testifying to Kuhlau’s own brilliance as a pianist.

“let's have the Third Quartet and some more Kuhlau from these fine young Danish musicians.” Gramophone Magazine, July 2015

“Two fine Danish quartets performed with conviction and virtuosity.” MusicWeb International, April 2015

Duo Åstrand/Salo: Christina Åstrand (violin) & Per Salo (piano)

The German composer Friedrich Kuhlau (1786-1832) fled to Denmark as a young man and with his strong cosmopolitan personality became both a loner and a key figure in the Danish Golden Age. Kuhlau was a great admirer of the slightly older Beethoven and thus championed new tones in Danish music. His masterful and melodically appealing violin sonatas became the first Danish sonatas in the Romantic style, and with this recording Duo Åstrand/Salo lends new lustre to music that has only rarely been performed in our time.

“The playing on the new Dacapo disc is admirably clean, flexible and responsive, both to the music and between the two players.” Gramophone Magazine, November 2014
