Review by JJ June 27, 2010 (3 of 5 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:    
With this second volume devoted to the works for piano and violin of Franz Schubert (Sonata “Duo” D.574 Op. Posth.162, Sonata D.934 Op. Posth.159), it is once again the flamboyant talent of the two young artists performing that stops us in our tracks. The perfect equilibrium of their osmosis, the ineffable poetry their musical discourse gives off, the complicity of every moment, are the real Schubert, and only Schubert in what makes him most human and intrinsically overwhelming. A Schubert that is even somewhat unknown in these scores for two instruments that one discovers in this first-class recording. Schubert is revealed. For, Julia Fisher puts us, as ever, under her spell, and here even more so by her approach in the Fantasy D.940 Op.103 in which she returns to her first instrument: the piano, from which she extracts exemplary phrasing. Alongside her, the “second voice” of Martin Helmchen melds with hers in common inspiration, a dialogue in four hands of unheard of delicacy. Here is truly great art.
