Description: Celebrating Thalberg's bicentennial, this latest in Querstand's "Jubilee Edition" series gives us 32 minutes of lively, virtuosic piano pieces (this, of course, includes the Rossini Grand Duo where Bériot's violin part competes with Thalberg's piano on equal terms) but turns expectations upside-down with 47 minutes of melancholy songs, whose poems seem to have been chosen for their concentration on suffering, heartbreak, despair, loss and death - what could be more Romantic? German texts. Manja Raschka (mezzo), Felix Plock (baritone), Andreas Hartmann (violin), Stefan Burkhardt (piano).
