Description: We couldn’t put in any better than we did three plus years ago when describing two Klughardt chamber works from a year or two earlier than this 1886 trio: “Klughardt blends lyricism and richness of sonority with concentrated motivic working with the same ease with which he plays both sides of the Brahms/Schumann vs. Wagner/Liszt stylistic divide to produce "serious" music of depth which is also a pure joy to the ear.” And the Schneider is a real bonus for early Romantic/late Classical collectors: like Klughardt he spent the greater part of his career in Dessau and his 1826 work (the same size as Klughardt’s at 24 minutes) is plainly inspired by Beethoven in three of its movements while the Larghetto has a lyricism worthy of the young Schubert.
