'One glance at Schubert s trio, and the miserable hustle and bustle of human existence vanishes, the world takes on fresh lustre', wrote Robert Schumann in 1836 of Schubert s Piano Trio D898. He was equally admiring of the Viennese composer s other great trio, D929, notably its funeral march-like Andante con moto, later to achieve cinematic fame in Kubrick s 'Barry Lyndon'. Here three peerless interpreters bring out every nuance of these endlessly fascinating works on their period instruments , including a splendid copy of an 1827 Viennese fortepiano.

The two sonatas for clarinet and piano, composed in 1894, were Brahms’s last chamber works. Knowing that he could count on the virtuosity of their dedicatee, the prodigious clarinettist Richard Mühlfeld (1856-1907), Brahms enthusiastically exploited all the expressive possibilities of the instrument. Under the fingers of Lorenzo Coppola, the clarinet prays, sobs, dreams or laughs, bringing astonishing conviction to all these varied emotions.

J.S. Bach's seven fabulously inventive concertos for solo harpsichord and orchestra mark a key stage in the history of the concertante form. The set was compiled during Bach's Leipzig years, when he directed the city's Collegium Musicum, and requires unfailing virtuosity and imagination of its performers. In the interpretations of Andreas Staier and the Freiburger Barockorchester, these works come alive again in joyful readings that are sure to delight.

"…Staier's bold, stirring playing, always a pleasure to hear, is especially impressive in these ambitious works. He plays a recently restored French harpsichord of the late 17th century that can stand up to his high-intensity style. The result: a fine program that achieves something different from what it set out to do." ~allmusicguide

We all know that Mozart had an impish sense of humour. Now we know it is shared by the gifted German pianist Andreas Staier, who permits himself authentically Amadean fun with his decorative conceits in these three inter-linked sonatas, especially in the celebrated 'Ronda alla Turca' from the most distinctive, K.331. But he also accords the composer due respect, bringing as much grace and poise to the contemplative slow movements as sprightly mischief to the pyrotechnical passages. In few hands can the fortepiano sound so expressive; at times, it is tempting to wonder if this is much how Mozart played his own works.

"Purely from a historical performance viewpoint, there is much of interest here: Staier plays on an 1825 Johann Fritz four-pedalled fortepiano. (…) Very much a disc worth hearing, then, and one that will surely complement some treasured modern instrument performances of these works." ~musicweb-international

Staier's interpretation and delivery of these lesser known Baroque classics have come down to us in a reissued catalogue that surprises and delights both with the quality of the performance and the exemplary noise-free recording. This rare opportunity to encounter the extended Bach legacy in all its glory is sumptuously and indulgently displayed by a band of virtuoso players who can hold their own as soloists as well as perform naturally and convincingly as a team…

…Overall, Staier is persuasive in his choice of tempi, ornamentation, mechanical proficiency, and his basic characterization—one of the most important aspects to a successful performance of this piece. He has a way of treating these variations individually, much as Gould did in his first recording of the Goldbergs. Most importantly, he has…energy and life.

…The justifiably well known Rondo all’Ungarese is played with superb virtuosity by the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra with string playing of extraordinary unanimity, with again that wonderful bass. Andreas Staier makes much of the gypsy element and conjures a huge range of colours out of his Walter copy pianoforte. A terrific CD.
