Klaviertrios Nr. 1 & Nr. 2
Paul Badura-Skoda, piano, Wolfgang Schneiderhan, violin and Boris Pergamenschikow, violoncello are among the most important musicians of the second half of the 20th century. A testimony to their rare collaboration can be found in this hitherto unpublished recording, which presents the three exceptional artists with the piano trios by Franz Schubert. The Trio No. 1 in B-flat major, op. 99, D 898 is a studio recording from the Grand Hall of the Austrian Broadcasting Corporation in Vienna from 1984, the second trio in E-flat major, op. 100, D 929 was made during the Salzburg Festival in 1981 as a concert recording. These recordings provide a stunning experiencing of the superb individual class as well as chamber musical abilities of three of the greatest musicians of musical history.
Paul Badura-Skoda has long been a symbol of the cultivation of Viennese classical music. The holder of the prestigious Bösendorfer-Ring, he is a celebrated guest at major international music festivals. Badura-Skoda performs with equal authority on both period and modern instruments. He was, truly, a pioneer in proposing the use of period pianos in performance, which has, today, become very popular in concert halls around the world. His recordings number well beyond the two hundred mark (LPs and CDs) including the complete cycles of the piano sonatas of Schubert, Mozart and Beethoven. He recorded these cycles on original instruments from his own collection.
Wolfgang Schneiderhan was born in Vienna in 1915. After briefly studying with Otakar ?ev?ík in Pisek, he studied with Julius Winkler in Vienna. He lived in England for some time from 1929, where he appeared in concerts with artists such as Maria Jeritza, Feodor Chaliapin, Jan Kiepura and Paul Robeson. Schneiderhan returned to Vienna to become the first Concertmaster of the Vienna Symphony Orchestra from 1933 to 1937, and from 1937 to 1951 led the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. He nevertheless maintained his career as a soloist in concerts and recordings. He held teaching posts in Salzburg, Vienna and Lucerne.
Boris Pergamenschikow was born in 1948 in Leningrad, and received his first cello lessons from his father. Later he studied with Emmanuel Fischmann in Leningrad. In 1977, he emigrated from the USSR to the West, which enabled him to start an international career. In 1984, his debut in New York was enthusiastically reviewed. Over the following years he performed as a soloist with leading orchestras and acclaimed as a chamber musician, with musical partners such as Gidon Kremer, Claudio Abbado, Yehudi Menuhin, Mstislav Rostropovich and Krzysztof Penderecki. He moved to Germany, where he taught at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz in Cologne (1977-1992) and since 1998 at the Hochschule für Musik "Hanns Eisler" in Berlin.
