Format: Audio CD
Dohnanyi's two piano quintets and the serenade for string trio belong to the category of finest chamber music ever written. It is sad that they are so little known today, because the melodic inventiveness, the solid structures and overall material of these works prove him to have been a true genius in the shadow of his contemporaries Bartok and Kodaly. The Schubert ensemble of London plays with great affection for this music. In my collection of over 200 records of classical music this ranks to top 5 without a doubt. An absolute must-have for a romantic music lover!

Both Piano Quintets and the 'Serenade' (String Trio) March 9 2005
By J Scott Morrison - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This review is actually to mention and comment briefly on competing recordings of Dohnanyi chamber works, primarily the First Piano Quintet, an amazing, melodic, well-crafted work from Dohnányi's student years and his Opus 1. Every movement has its felicities, including the catchy final movement with its 5/4 meter and obligatory fugal ending. There are competing versions of that work recorded by the Gabrieli Quartet with Wolfgang Manz, piano; the Vanbrugh Quartet, with Martin Roscoe, piano; and the Takacs Quartet with András Schiff. All are actually quite wonderful performances and I suspect the main draw for any of these recordings will be the Quintet's discmates. The couplings: Schubert Ensemble (Second Piano Quintet, the delightful 'Serenade,' which is a string trio), Gabrieli Quartet (Second String Quartet, Op. 15), Takacs (Sextet, Op. 37).

On this disc is the Second Quintet, Op. 26, which is considerably advanced from the Op. 1, but is still in the ambit of Brahmsian harmonic warmth. And sandwiched between the two quintets is the delightful 'Serenade.' The Serenade, written in 1902, is for string trio, that rarest of chamber music forms; it is difficult to write music with full-sounding romantic harmonies with just three instruments. However, by judicious use of double-stops and lots of cello and viola arpeggios using 4ths, 5ths, 6ths and 10ths, the harmonies are filled out admirably and richly. Indeed, this piece is every bit as yummy as a cup of hot dark rich chocolate. If you love Brahms, you'll love this piece. It has been much-recorded and even rescored (by Dimitry Sitkovetsky) for string orchestra; this recording holds its own with that company.

Recommended both for performances and for the repertoire represented. You can't go wrong with this one if you love Brahms or music of that ilk.

Madama Butterfly Met Opera Sept. 9 2013
By George J. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Licia Albanese was always my favorite Cio-Cio-San. I have seen many Butterflys; I don't go back as far as Geraldine Farrar. It was a delight to have Mme.Albanese's complete Butterfly, even with a few cuts. The rest of the cast is a usual Met Butterfly, but Licia raises this to an outstanding performance, even if it is over 70 years old. Anyone who wants to hear how Butterfly should be done, listen to this one.
