Beethoven Explored, vol. 6 - The Chamber Eroica
Peter Sheppard Skærved (violin), Dov Scheindlin (viola), Neil Heyde (cello), Aaron Shorr (piano)
This is a very important recording, as it is the first time the original piano quartet version of the Eroica Symphony has been recorded. (it should not be confused with the arrangement by Ferdinand Ries published 50 years later).
This anonymous arrangement was made at Beethoven's insistence (though he had requested a string quintet) and published in 1807, three years after the orchestral premiere. The writing is far superior to that of Ries in the later version, and this work stands as a fine and magisterial piano quartet in its own right.
A brilliant performance means that this album is a must for everyone - and at low price too.Find product MW7 to buy the whole series of 6CDs at 25% discount.

Quartet Choreography (DVD)
One of the foremost British ensembles, the Kreutzer Quartet specialises in new music and has already made many recordings for Metier and other labels. This superb film is not only the record of brilliant performances of major modern quartets and fine entertainment, it is also a valuable and rewarding tool for observing how the layers of an ensemble communicate and interact, especially in works like that of Lutoslawski which allow performers a degree of choice. Above all it is a demonstration that music very foten should eb seen as well as heard.

This disc is universal-play (Region 0) and doublesided PAL/NTSC so will play in any country.
Contains:Igor Stravinsky:Three Pieces for String Quartet
Witold Lutoslawski:String Quartet
Gyorgy Ligeti:String Quartet No. 2

“The velvet-toned violin of Peter Sheppard Skaerved has found an inspired partner in Aaron Shorr. Hats off to [Skaerved] whose beautifully articulated, lithe playing emerges from out of the piano's rolling textures rather than masking them. For once we are allowed to experience these glorious works as piano sonatas with violin obbligato as Skaerved weaves his way in and out of Beethoven's indomitable flights of pianistic fancy, brought stunningly to life by Aaron Shorr's perfectly regulated playing. Well-balanced engineering provides the musical icing on the cake.” – Julian Haylock (Sinfini Music)
