From his very first surviving work, a fantasy, to the masterpieces composed in the year of his death in 1828, Schubert left more than thirty-five scores for piano four hands. He imposed drama, grandeur and virtuosity on the genre, suspending time to follow the rhythm of his eternal traveller’s footsteps. For more than twenty years now, in intense symbiosis, Claire Désert and Emmanuel Strosser have been exploring together the unique world of Schubert’s piano duets.

Is it the lure of the unknown or the need to run away from something that prompts the Romantic ‘Wanderer’ to roam the world without any precise aim? If ever he encounters happiness where he is, his solitary itinerary nevertheless retains an initiatory quality. The lieder of Franz Schubert, here transcribed for cello and piano, explore all the nuances of this inner quest, in which a journey both painful and comforting finally leads to tranquillity and a sort of transcendence.

The title ‘1828’ refers to Schubert’s final and astoundingly productive year, which brought forth the three duets and solo sonata featured on this disc. In Philippe Cassard’s hands, the declamatory dynamism of the D959 A major Sonata’s first-movement exposition takes a back seat, with an emphasis on shapely soft playing that ravishingly comes to roost throughout the movement’s development section. The pianist’s eloquent legato holds attention in the Andantino’s outer sections, yet he downplays the harrowing chromatic climax. He similarly understates the Scherzo’s explosive descending minor scales, yet his delicate, witty arpeggiation of the main theme’s leaping chords delights. While the Rondo gains assurance and momentum as it progresses, I prefer Pollini’s firmer left-hand projection in the explosive central minor episode and the intelligent architecture of his dynamics.

It is on an extraordinary instrument that the french pianist Cyril Huvé performs selected works of Liszt, Schubert, Debussy and Scriabin. His disc-recital is called Opus 102, the name of the piano designed by Stephen Paulello. The former teacher and tuner released the sounding board and expanded the traditional Steinway ambitus to favor the production of a « high fidelity » sound, capable of restoring all the richness of the repertoire of the 19th and 20th centuries.

Vilde Frang’s Homage is more than a captivating programme of short pieces for violin and piano, it is also a homage to the players of the Golden Age of the Violin, such as Fritz Kreisler, Leopold Auer and Joseph Szigeti. The recital includes music originally conceived not just for the violin, but also for piano, orchestra or voice, and proves once again, as BBC Music Magazine wrote, that “Frang has the knack of breathing life into every note, whether by variations in phrasing, attack, tone or dynamic.”

The works of Schubert are central to Elisabeth Leonskaja's repertoire - and her interpretations of his work have been described as "essential". Born in the Soviet Union, where her greatest mentor was Sviatoslav Richter, she moved in 1978 to Vienna. She has said that: "In Schubert, there are things that any average Viennese person will understand better than I do … I, though, have to think about them carefully. In Schubert, profound matters are expressed with a lightness of touch."

With Musings, young Dutch pianist Camiel Boomsma presents a programme dedicated to Schubert and Chopin on this his first album on the Challenge Classics label. ’Musings signifies dreams, reveries, being immersed in thought. It’s the process that the composer experiences while writing the work and also what I experience when studying and performing this music. As I play, I try in turn to pass on this process, this quest for insight, to my audience.
