(Not just) Schubert on Sunday 7: Elisabeth Brauss and friends

Elisabeth Brauss has recently been in Australia with Noa Wildschut (above), with the two friends playing a dozen concerts to great acclaim in many reviews (such as here). Sadly, none of the performances seems to have been recorded for broadcast. One day, the recording studio must surely beckon.

However, another series of concerts by Elisabeth and friends was recorded in the Belfast a month or so back, and four short programmes were broadcast by the BBC this week, and are now available on BBC sounds:

1. Schumann Piano Quintet, and Mozart Quartet no. 1 (with Chaos Quartet)

2. Schubert D.664 and César Franck Cello Sonata (with Leonard Elschenbroich)

3. Schumann Carnaval, Fanny Mendelssohn Quartet in E flat Major (with Chaos Quartet)

4. Brahms, Cello Sonata and Ravel Le tombeau de couperin (with Leonard Elschenbroich)

Elisabeth’s Schubert little A major and the Ravel I heard her play in Cambridge are particularly good. As is this other outstanding performance of hers, also broadcast on the BBC this week:

5. Chopin Scherzo No. 2 in B flat minor (starting about 2hr 8m into the programme)
