About

Louis Spohrís life-long artistic commitment to elegance, sturdy workmanship and emotional reticence has burdened him with a reputation as a nostalgic conservative. Yet his melodic mastery, delicately poised Classical sensibility and advanced treatment of harmony, are evident in the highly enjoyable music on this disc.

Glittering solo passages and congenial interplay between the soloists characterise both the Concertantes - which pay tribute to the Baroque concerto grosso and look forward to the music of Berlioz, Tchaikovsky and Mahler - and the Duo, with its lively dialogues between equal partners.
