Robert Fuchs (1847‐1927) was born in Austria, near the border of Slovenia. He went to Vienna for his musical education and became a close friend of Johannes Brahms, who wrote very favourably about his music (“beautiful, perfectly written and fascinating in its inventiveness”). Later Fuchs became Director of the Vienna Conservatory, and teacher of an impressive array of students: Mahler, Zemlinsky, Schreker, Sibelius, Schmidt, Enescu, Wolf, amongst others.
Fuchs’ chamber music reflects the musical atmosphere of late 19th century Vienna: highly expressive, wide tonality, extensive use of chromatism.
These are excellent performances by three young Italians: pianist Enrico Maria Polimanti, violinist Giulio Plotino, and viola player Claudio Cavaletti: committed and passionate playing!
The excellent liner notes were written by the pianist.
