How exciting was the music of Beethoven to his contemporaries? Duo Staemmler give us proof positive on their new Genuin classics disc (a co-production with the German Music Council): The winners of the German Music Competition award begin the CD like a rocket, with electrifying and yet finely sensitive playing. Peter-Philipp (cello) and Hansjacob Stemmler (piano) not only demonstrate mastery of the early Romantic idiom—their performance of the haunted strains of Witold Lutoslawski’s Night Piece captivates the listener as does their exhilarating rendition of Late Romantic repertoire. The early Richard Strauss work and the worthy discovery of Nikolai Miaskovsky’s volcanic piece round off a debut CD which holds great promise of more to come from these young artists.

"The duo deserves hearty congratulations for its versatile CD debut thanks to its remarkable tone, interpretation and choice of programming."
Ensemble 8/9 2010
