The distinguished Cuban-American violinist Andrés Cárdenes, with pianist David Deveau, who has been on the music faculty of MIT for more than a quarter-century as his partner, undertakes a program of works by Franz Schubert that cannot fail to hit the mark with music lovers. In a well-filled 79-minute CD in which the listener is too busy being enchanted to care about something as mundane as time, we are given the Sonatinas in D major, D384; A minor, D385; and G minor, D408, and the Fantasie in C major, D934. All reveal Schubert in his most lyrical and most inventive vein.
Cardenes and Deveau are attuned to all the moods in a work which, played continuously, assumes a symphonic dimension. © 2017 Audio Video Club of Atlanta Read complete review
