November 2016 ∙ MusicWeb International ∙ George Enescu plays Bach and Schubert
The second release devoted to surviving French broadcasts made by George Enescu sees the great musician in the dual roles of soloist and ensemble player. His Bach discography is hereby expanded given the existence of these two Sonatas and it’s a rare opportunity to hear him in an expanded group performing Schubert’s Octet. No matter how vulnerable his health and his failing technique, surviving off-air Enescu performances are limited in number and the restoration of his French broadcasts is especially to be welcomed.
