5.0 out of 5 stars Chamber Music from a Newly Rediscovered Master 16 Aug 2010
By J Scott Morrison HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This is a two-CD set. One of the CDs -- the one with the Piano Quintets -- had been previously issued on the ASV label and I reviewed it when it came out. The other -- of the Sextet for Piano and Winds, and of the Piano Trio -- is, as far as I can tell, a new recording. I will simply reprint my original review of the Quintets here:

"Ludwig Thuille was a friend of Richard Strauss when they were both students of composition in Munich. But Thuille died relatively young and Strauss lived on to the end of WWII; Thuille was barely known except in a small circle of cognoscenti, while Strauss in his time was the most famous German composer in the world. Thuille eked out a living as a teacher in Munich (among his pupils was the Swiss-American Ernest Bloch); Strauss lived royally on the profits from his compositions. Yet they remained friends until Thuille's death in 1907 and Strauss more than once commended Thuille's work. Thuille's music was classic in the Brahmsian sense although always more chromatic than Brahms's. He had a gift for clear construction and lyrical effusion, and both those are evident in the two piano quintets on this CD. The later Op. 20 quintet in E flat is much the more impressive of the two. The G minor quintet was written when Thuille was nineteen and although neat enough, it remains a student work more or less indistinguishable from similar works by others of the time.

The E flat quintet is a lovely thing that makes purchase of this CD an easy recommendation. In the usual four movements, the music ranges from a tightly constructed opening Allegro and a hauntingly melodic Adagio with a particularly engaging pizzicato section to a vigorous and exciting finale, Allegro e risoluto.

The G minor quintet was written when Thuille was nineteen and although neat enough, it remains a student work more or less indistinguishable from similar works by others of the time.

The E flat quintet is a lovely thing that makes purchase of this CD an easy recommendation. In the usual four movements, the music ranges from a tightly constructed opening Allegro and a hauntingly melodic Adagio with a particularly engaging pizzicato section to a vigorous and exciting finale, Allegro e risoluto. If the early three-movement G minor Quintet is less striking, it does have a lovely, lightly sentimental Larghetto and a rousing finale. Both quintets are given enthusiastic and expert performances here by pianist Tomer Lev and the members of the Falk Quartet. I gather both these works have been recorded by Oliver Triendl and the Vogler Quartet, on cpo, but I have not heard that issue."

The Quintets have also been recorded before, quite successfully, on the cpo label by a group, the Vogler Quartet with pianist Oliver Triendl, who have been making a speciality of recording little-known chamber pieces from the late Romantic period: Ludwig Thuille: Piano Quintets. There is, actually, little to choose between these two recordings.

The Piano and Wind Sextet has also been recorded before (which I also reviewed): Thuille: Sextet Op. 6; Piano Quintet in E flat major, Op. 20. I'm particularly fond of the Sextet's insouciant third movement Gavotte. The present set, featuring the London Conchord Ensemble, also includes the Piano Trio in E Flat which has not, as far as I know, been recorded before (or, at least, there is no other version available here at Amazon). And both the Sextet and the Trio are beautifully played. It was wonderful to make the acquaintance of the Piano Trio which is to all appearances an earlier work that is not quite as adventurous harmonically reminding me in spots of a light-hearted Schumann work.

This well-filled two-CD set seems to be priced in mid-range and is worth having. The label, Champs Hill, is a new one to me but presentation, engineering and sound are all first-rate.
