Fine playing all around, but not as gloriously fun as Ax, Ma, and friends 4 Jan. 2012
By Andrew R. Barnard - Published on Amazon.com
Make no mistake: this album features playing from outstanding musicians. Gilels and the Amadeus Quartet play with vision and the utmost of clarity. There's something wonderful about hearing musicians interact on an intimate level, and what chamber music is as delightful as Schubert's "Trout" Quintet"? Certainly Gilels and the Amadeus Quartet understand each other, both having a pleasing richness in tone.

For what it's worth, I acquired this disc after becoming familiar with Emanuel Ax and Yo-Yo Ma's recording of it with several of their friends. (From now on, I'll refer to the two different interpretations as Gilels and Ax, respectively). I was strongly pleased with that version, but thought that the Gilels deserved a listen as well. And it certainly does. Both interpretations are markedly different, Gilels favoring a more laid back approach. Gilels is slower than Ax, taking 39 minutes to Ax's 37, but Gilels feels even slower than the comparative timings suggest. Gilels seems to take a resigned approach, one that strikes me as being more suited to Brahms than Schubert. Ax rides on the clouds, glorious and without a care in the world. You have to smile listening to Ax, but Gilels can border on sounding ponderous. Sound quality doesn't determine everything of course, but Sony's sonics on the Ax are out of this world; naturally Gilels' 70's analog isn't on the same level.

In closing, this is a fine disc. Personally I prefer Ax's sunnier lyricism to Gilels' resigned approach, but both are sure to please the listener.
