Description: Here we juxtapose Fischer's version of Beethoven’s 6th Symphony for string sextet with his piano quartet. Fischer was one of the first reviewers of the "Pastorale" in the renowned journal "Allgemeine musikalische Zeitung". His judgement shows a deep understanding of Beethoven's visionary creative power and the subtle tonal details of the composition. The ambition of the large-scale piano quartet is expressed not least in the dedication to Queen Luise, and Fischer does justice to it by every trick in the book. Elements of sonata and concerto are skillfully interwoven and artful cadenzas are introduced. Parnassus Akademie.
