Schubert Trout Quintet, Notturno (2009)

Schubert

Martin Helmchen, Christian Tetzlaff, Antoine Tamestit, Marie-Elisabeth Hecker, Alois Posch, Aldo Baerten

The overly serious musicologist shrinks from pronouncing the words Trout Quintet. He is well aware that this 'subtitle' did not originate with Franz Schubert, who wrote the quintet for piano, violin, viola cello and double bass in A major. And indeed, the choice of epithets for works by other composers has at times been unfortunate; indeed, taking into consideration the content of the entire work, one might even say misrepresentative, or distracting.

He also performs with the Orchestre National de Lyon with Antoni Wit, the Orchestre National de France with Andrés Orozco-Estrada, Radio Symphony Orchestra of Berlin with Marek Janowski and makes his debut with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra and John Storgårds.  He collaborates again with Andris Nelsons on a tour in Germany with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and joins Viviane Hagner and Marie-Elizabeth Hecker on tour in Spain with the Munich Chamber Orchestra. Returning to the USA he makes his debut with the Houston Symphony under the baton of Hans Graf.
In recital two important venues are added to a busy schedule including Berlin’s Philharmonie,  San Francisco’s SF Performances series.    With a passion for chamber music largely ignited in early collaborations with the late cellist Boris Pergamenschikow Martin Helmchen performs throughout Europe during 2012/13 with his wife and cellist Marie-Elizabeth Hecker and joining with Veronica Eberle and Antoine Tomastit they perform in Berlin, Amsterdam and Paris.

    "Tonally accurate and beautifully balanced"

A fine pianist alone would not be enough, but Martin Helmchen is fortunate to be joined by four superb string players who have coalesced brilliantly with him to create an outstanding chamber ensemble. Christian Tetzlaff, while perhaps best known as a soloist in the concert hall, also has a dedicated career as a chamber musician as do Marie-Elisabeth Hecker (cello) and Antoine Tamestit (viola), while Alois Posch is no less than leader of the bass section of the Vienna Philharmonic / Wiener Philharmoniker. The recording, made in the intimate acoustic of the Siemens-Villa, Berlin, is tonally accurate and beautifully balanced, allowing the listener to hear each individual player’s performance while still maintaining a coherent and homogeneous sound. This is a wonderful release that certainly deserves a top recommendation.
