Description
Chamber music lovers, lend us your ears. These thrilling live performances from Carnegie Hall in 1979 will sustain you for many a day.

"A towering performance of the Kreutzer Sonata; I couldn't resist the temptation to repeat the experience immediately. Performance is the operative word—with Shumsky and Wild 'living' the unfolding musical events…. Both outer movements are taken at a true presto…. The first movement has an extremely passionate character, Shumsky and Wild making Beethoven's sforzandi and fortissimi speak in a vividly expressive way. The power of the playing is tempered by Shumsky's fine tonal control and by the magnificent balance of Wild's chord playing. The grumpiest of Beethoven's closely spaced left-hand chords sound clear and resonant. In the Andante, the variations take over from one another to create an impressive, cumulative effect, and the finale has an infectiously unbuttoned spirit…. Barber's youthful but highly characteristic and dramatic Sonata is very well done … [with] Curtis rising impressively to the challenge of partnering with Wild. In the Tchaikovsky … many wonderful moments [include] Wild's superb, magical playing of the Mazurka variation…. Magnificent playing, in the grand manner."—Gramophone
