Schubert wrote many short piano works. Often as simple “entertainment”, but always bearing the stamp of genius, with ever so often a pang of melancholy or sadness, so characteristic of the Schubert The Romantic. Performed by Alberto Miodini.
The complete survey of Bartók's music for two pianos, stemming from Bartók's special artistic collaboration with his wife, the pianist Dittá Pásztory. Great performance by Italian duo Matteo Fossi and Marco Gaggini.
The complete six “Berliner” symphonies by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach. Dedicated and spirited historically informed performances by Hartmut Haenchen and his C.P.E. Bach Chamber Orchestra.
The four clarinet concertos by Louis Spohr are by no means rare these days. A fair number of the leading clarinet virtuosos have tackled them.
