This is the only modern performance of the wonderful Fantasy for violin and piano which is in the same league as the old Adolf Busch recording. The rest of the performances are wonderful as well: both violinist and pianist are oustanding.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This very well recorded disc from 2004 was bought simply as a response to hearing the small samples from tracks on Amazon. In particular I was struck by the beauty of the opening to the Fantaisie, almost like sounds from another world, and which sounded unlike any other Schubert that I had ever heard.

That early promise has been amply fulfilled as indeed the introduction and ending of that Fantaisie really does inhabit a world apart, of half lights and tones and is wonderfully caught by Faust and Melnikov. The remainder of the four movements clearly demonstrate Schubert's quality as a composer in an area of composition, for solo violin, that is relatively rare in his output. In general terms this work is a sunny piece as is the great majority of the remaining two pieces. Although a late work, it does not contain those darker moments so often to be found in the late quartets or piano sonatas.

The concluding Rondo brillant in two movements, andante and allegro, is exactly what it suggests and is an enjoyable salon piece of considerable technical challenge. This is an earlier work being written some ten years before and makes an excellent encore item which is now this disc concludes.

The sonata, while being more weighty in terms of the two outer movements than the Fantaisie, is still an optimistic work overall. The scherzo presto is a tour de force and the following andantino is an example of typical Schubert lyricism.

All of these pieces are relatively rarely played and have come to my notice by chance at a late stage in my collecting days. It only goes to illustrate that there is no end to the voyage of discovery and there are always unexpected treats to be found in unexpected places. it just requires an open mind.

I therefore confidently suggest that this disc is really worth investigating and that it offers some lovely music played with the greatest empathy and skill. Well worth considering as a purchase.
