All Music Guide - James Leonard
Terrific as far as it goes, this two-disc set of Schubert's music for piano trio goes no further than the Rhein. That is not to say that the quintessentially French ensemble of pianist Jean-Philippe Collard, violinist Augustin Dumay, and cellist Frédéric Lodéon is not absolutely first-rate in every way. Each is a strongly characterful and thoroughly virtuosic player and together their ensemble is flexible but always together, individualistic but always unified in intent. But they surely do sound French! Unlike their rivals across the Rhein, Collard's tone is more spiccato than legato, Collard's tone is more détaché than legato, Lodéon's tone more reserved than robust. For...

That is not to say that the quintessentially French ensemble of pianist Jean-Philippe Collard, violinist Augustin Dumay, and cellist Frédéric Lodéon is not absolutely first-rate in every way. Each is a strongly characterful and thoroughly virtuosic player and together their ensemble is flexible but always together, individualistic but always unified in intent. But they surely do sound French! Unlike their rivals across the Rhein, Collard's tone is more spiccato than legato, Collard's tone is more détaché than legato, Lodéon's tone more reserved than robust. For those who like their Schubert less dramatic and more inward, less emphatic and more lyrical, less overly emotional and more deeply soulful, the Collard/Dumay/Lodéon trio's approach may not succeed. But anyone who responds to French music making will certainly enjoy their performances of the Viennese composer's music. Try the "Notturno": if the Collard/Dumay/Lodéon's lushly sensual interpretation sounds appropriate for Schubert's ethereally tender music, then the performances will be pure to please from start to finish. EMI's early digital sound is very immediate but perhaps too forward.

    This is my favorite of all the renditions of Schubert's trios I

    This is my favorite of all the renditions of Schubert's trios I have heard. It is so full of energy! Especially I like the first movement of Trio No. 1, which mesmerized me from the first moment I heard the opening bars in my car on the way home from the library where I had come across the double-CD album. The group plays together with perfect sychronization and zest, building marvellously in intensity especially in the last minute before it returns to quietness in the last 30 seconds. I also like the convolutedness of the second movement of Trio No. 2.
