4.0 out of 5 stars A great pianist matched with relaxed, gemutlich Viennese May 13 2006
By Santa Fe Listener - Published on Amazon.com
The Viennese charm in ths string playing on this CD is famed but by no means disciplined--the approach is sweet, relaxed, a bit careless about ensemble. But the pianist, Clifford Curzon, is something else again. He dominates both the Schubert Trout Quintet and the Dvorak Piano Quintet, and his musicianship, while seemingly relaxed, contains a wealth of maturity. In that sense the performance is a bit of a mismathc: the string players can't keep up with Curzon, despite their gemutlich affability.

Contrary to the capsule reviews below, I wouldn't buy this CD for the Trout Quintet--Curzon's live performance on BBC Legends with the Amadeus Quartet is musically superior. My attention was caught by the Dvorak, where Curzon's lovely phrasing and continuous insight are simply beautiful. So, not exactly half a loaf--let's say three-quarters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Engaging Schubert Oct. 26 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This is a beautifully played and very well-organized version of the Trout. The group shows a thorough understanding of the music, and gives an engaging and occasionally sparkling performance. The Dvorak is also well done. The recording is of the very best quality from the 60s.

4.0 out of 5 stars Made me think about the purpose of music. June 6 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
The important recording on this disk is the Trout, which is a moderately well-known piece. If it were known even better, and this recording is the perfect vehicle for such an enterprise, people may come to see music as a communal activity, what it once had been and what it could be again (pace Toscanini).
