 John Humphreys Soloist


Franz Schubert’s gift for songwriting transfers into the lyrical sensitivities in his instrumental music. Composed for himself and friends to play at musical evenings, the brilliant Rondo, D 608 shares the musical burden equally between the parts. The Sonata for Piano Duet, D 617 echoes the spirit of Mozart and was written for the daughters of Count Esterházy, the Six Grandes Marches et Trios having their place in the ballroom. Of these Nos 2 and 3 can be found in Vol 5 (8.570354), which was a Gramophone ‘Editor’s Choice’.
 

 "... This beautifully played recording is appealing for the musicality of the performers and its mix of relatively well-known and lesser-known material."

Michael Ullman - Fanfare - May/June 2013


 "...The Rondo is a large-scale serious work... The sonata is lighter weight ... The marches are big works ... I was especially taken with the brilliance and virtuosity on display in the final one. Humphreys and Markham play this music on a odern Steinway with precise ensemble ..."

James Harrington - American Record Guide - March/April 2013
