The works recorded by Wolfgang Watzinger’s cover a tremendous range, from the Baroque to the 20th century. Max Reger looked back nearly two centuries to Johann Sebastian Bach. Johannes Brahms feels equal to – writing variations on a theme by the violin king himself, Niccolo Paganini. And Franz Schubert tells of the bittersweet luck to be allowed to live in the failure of this world. A balanced, successful program selection and strong interpretations make this CD a jewel for chamber music lovers, especially those who enjoy going off the beaten path. Watzinger approaches three very different works with considerable poise, explores their depths and captivates the listener for a good hour.
