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.

HASH(0x9acfeb04) out of 5 stars The cream of the crop in Schubert's violin music 9 May 2010
By Santa Fe Listener - Published on
Format: Audio CD
For me, the masterpiece here is the haunting Fantasy in C, D. 934, with its mysterious opening and a slow movement based on the melancholy lied, "Sei mir gegrusst." Having heard a cello transcription done in concert by Pieter Wispelwey, I found it hard to locate a comparable reading until I came upon the duo of Isabelle Faust and Alexander Melnikov. I knew of the Russian pianist as a protege of Richter's, but of the German violinist I knew nothing. They are a lovely pair musically, full of refined liveliness, adroit in finding the hidden emotional half-tones in Schubert's apparently simple writing.

I'm a bit embarrassed that I don't know any of Schubert's violin music; perhaps I just needed to run across readings that were this captivating. Although the Fantasy and the Rondo brilliant were written for a virtuoso duo -- so the Gramophone reviewer states -- their technical demands sound fairly modest to me. I can imagine a talented teenager getting through them with little difficulty. But it takes real musicality to find the poised intensity that lifts these scores to their modestly sublime place in Schubert's output. Having sampled a few other readings, including those by Gidon Kremer and Isaac Stern, I don't think I need to look farther than this lovely CD.

Here's the program: Violin Sonata, D574. Fantasie, D934. Rondo brillant, D895

HASH(0x913d0b1c) out of 5 stars The wonderful voyage of discovery and education is always open to seekers 7 Dec. 2013
By I. Giles - Published on
Format: Audio CD
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.
HASH(0x9125f75c) out of 5 stars A transcendental musical document! 23 Nov. 2015
By Hiram Gòmez Pardo Venezuela - Published on
Format: Audio CD
To be loyal to the truth Schubert's violin music has not been recorded widely. As far I remember we should cite the memorable readings made by Alexander Schneider during the well reminded Casals Festival from Puerto Rico, Simon Goldberg with Radu Lupu and Zukerman-Barenboim.

Isabelle Faust's prodigious versatilty made it possible to rediscover the hidden treasures beneath these musical scores. She is the most authoritaive soloist of the instrument of her generation. Her absolute domain of the piece paves the way to achieve the core of the Opus without any effort. Her instrument works out as a palette giving us the most intimate details of this musical landscape.

An absolute must-have recording.Don't miss it.
HASH(0x9acfeea0) out of 5 stars Schubert: Violin Sonata, D 574 review by David Sermersheim 24 Mar. 2014
By David A. Sermersheim - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This recording is most elegant in sound, ensemble performance and clarity of execution. Isabelle Faust is a master of nuance. Her playing is almost magical, and this recording captures that magic as nothing else in my collection. When she needs lyricism or intensity she gets it effortlessly. Melnikoff is the perfect partner, in that he follows when he has to and leads when it's appropriate. These works are not often recorded (I don't think, but then I do not follow recent releases). If you love Schubert you'll be captivated by this recording. It sings and sighs, as only Schubert can.
