All Music Guide - Mike D. Brownell
Held in a retired 1904 Heimbach hydroelectric plant, the Spannungen Chamber Music Festival is an annual occurrence organized by pianist Lars Vogt. A variety of instrumentalists gather to perform a variety of chamber repertoire, from the familiar to the infrequently performed. The venue itself seems an unusual one for chamber music, and in fact live recordings made there do not yield the most ideal sound quality, producing a somewhat dead, flat backdrop especially for string players.

The venue itself seems an unusual one for chamber music, and in fact live recordings made there do not yield the most ideal sound quality, producing a somewhat dead, flat backdrop especially for string players.

The juxtaposition of six talented musicians who do not typically play together does have its problems, though; the sextet's intonation is not always polished, balance favors the upper strings, and tone varies between members. The program continues with an airy performance of Schumann's "Op. 73 Fantasiestücke" by clarinetist Jörg Widmann and a questionable arrangement of the same work for clarinet, flute, harp, and two violas by Aribert Reimann. All in all, the literature chosen for this disc save for the Op. 73 arrangement is quite enjoyable, but the performance -- particularly its sound quality -- is less remarkable.
