Following the spectacular world premiere of Molique's piano trios with his Trio Parnassus (MDG3032116), the series continues with more chamber music by this composer - an enthralling addition to the repertoire splendidly presented by the talented young stars of the Parnassus Academy.
'This composer's chamber and vocal compositions ought to be more frequently heard.' is what the English press wrote about Bernhard Molique during his lifetime, and Michael Groß has committed himself to fulfilling this.
A pupil of of the famous Louis Spohr, Molique skillfully combined public taste and artistic ambition as well as virtuosity and melodicism to form a marvellous musical union.
Recorded in MDG's perfectly balanced Super Audio CD sound, this is a wonderful addition to the catalogue and will be a joy for all fans of Louis Spohr.
