Yes,the great composers do seem to dig a little (allot) deeper. There's a spiritual or visionary quality. A humanity and universality of expression. It's hard to pin down what is exactly! But you know it when you hear it!

You're lucky to have ever played music like that,Lionel! I think I managed to master The March of the Wooden Soldiers & that was about it! I was doing quite well with my piano tuition,apparently. But as soon as it was time for my father to take me to my lessons I was nowhere to be found!! ::)

Actually,I only bought this set because the Piano Trio No 1 on the Beaux Arts Trio 2 cd set,which includes the Piano Quintet & Piano Quartet is split between cd's! This set sounds very good to me ears,though and the sound quality is what you might expect from Chandos,at their best! (I've been listening to it all day,actually!)

You do know it when you hear it, that's true, and it does defy analysis.

Yes, I was lucky; I seemed to take to the piano like a duck to water and while a lot of time was given over to practising, it never felt like work. My old dad used to say that anything you enjoy doing isn't 'work'. I hated playing solo and almost never did so but playing chamber music and accompanying singers was one of the joys of my life. Sadly, I am now 'past it' and only play a little with friends in private! Boots' wax ear-plugs, anyone?
