About

The importance of this set cannot be over-stated. First released on 7 separate CDs by Olympia, it launched the international reputation of Anthony Goldstone and Caroline Clemmow as one of the world’s foremost duos, and it remains the only complete recording of Schubert’s original duet compositions including many little-known masterpieces and one Polonaise completed by Goldstone from Schubert’s unfinished manuscript. Each disc concludes with a Polonaise encore written by Schumann, inspired by Schubert. The set represents the whole stretch of Schubert’s output from D1 to D968.

The performances are superb, exhilarating and perfectly integrated: the husband and wife team really do play like one person with four hands.

Tragically, Anthony Goldstone died on 2 January 2017 whilst the design work was being finalised, and did not live to see the re-issue of this marvellous collection, repackaged and remastered as a box set.
