Franz Schubert: Complete Piano Duets

The importance of this set cannot be over-stated. First released on 7 separate CDs by Olympia, it launched the international reputation of Anthony Goldstone and Caroline Clemmow as one of the world’s foremost duos, and it remains the only complete recording of Schubert’s original duet compositions including many little-known masterpieces and one Polonaise completed by Goldstone from Schubert’s unfinished manuscript.

What The Critics Are Saying…

Here, at last, we have a reissue of the only fully complete version of Schubert’s works for piano duet, and here Divine Art must be thanked for resurrecting these fine recordings. These are intelligently conceived and performed recitals, ones that bring the music [of] Schubert to life. Goldstone and Clemmow seem to be totally in tune with each other, which results in excellence throughout the set. A fitting tribute and memorial to [Goldstone’s] name and his prowess as an editor and performer.

” —Stuart Sillitoe, MusicWeb International

Certainly very musical and original, the Suites deserve to be considered on a level with those of Handel at the very least. These are masterful performances by Rowland, one of Europe’s most senior and accomplished harpsichord experts. Highly recommended.

” —John Pitt, New Classics

An impressive project… I find all of the recordings in this collection to be infectiously engaging.

” —Stephen Smoliar, The Rehearsal Room

This is a most worthwhile disc of fine, well-made chamber music by a composer largely unknown to the wider world. Nicely clear, warm sound as usual from this label.
