Complete Music for Violin & Piano[CD]
~ SCHUBERT / PAUK / FRANKL(2PC)
These 1964 recordings have worn well, and stand their ground in what is hardly a competitive marketplace for this lovely and still little-known music. These Hungarian-born, later UK-resident musicians play Schubert to the manner born, rejoicing in the relaxed Viennese tradition which is their birthright; as Gramophone noted at the time of the first release, these interpretations "are always technically accomplished, sensitive and well thought out and much to be preferred to many a more sensational rendering. Pauk's firm tone and capacity for long-breathed phrasing are shown to good advantage in the opening of the Fantasy... As always the ensemble is impeccable... As usual Vox have supplied a sympathetic acoustic with just that extra touch of reverberation sufficient to take away all trace of a clinical studio atmosphere."
