Consummation. This is what the piano music of Arnold Schönberg (1874-1951) and Franz Schubert (1979-1828) have in common, the bridge that Thomas Larcher brings to this welcoming solo recital, his first for ECM. To underscore this point, he shuffles Schönberg’s Klavierstücke op. 11 with Schubert’s posthumous Klavierstücke D 946. By turns halting and didactic, the opening pairing opens into the fresh air of Schubert’s precisely syncopated revelry. The contrasts between the two composers are obvious to the ear, but to the heart Schönberg is an extended exhalation to Schubert’s inhalation. Where Schönberg plots slow, jagged caverns, Schubert runs furtively above ground in the sunshine. Yet both seem so urgent to tell their stories, offering lifelong journeys from relatively young minds.

Similarly, the subtle miniatures that make up the Sechs kleine Klavierstücke op. 19 of Schönberg unfurl scrolls upon scrolls of experience, far into the future, where Schubert’s rolling Allegretto c-Mollo D 915 reads like a thrumming postscript.

One need not expound at great length in order to capture the spirit of this music. Its connections are fierce, their execution nimble as a dancer’s feet. Close your eyes, and let it show you a different sort of light.

Review by ECMreviews.com

This recital of pieces by the two greatest among native Viennese composers is unconventionally laid out, with Schubert’s three late pieces D946 interwoven among the individual numbers of Schoenberg’s Op. 11. Whether each sheds light on the other is open to question, but given Thomas Larcher’s dark, brooding view of Schubert, the juxtaposition is certainly not uninteresting. Schubert struck out one of the episodes in the first of his pieces, though it is still legible in his autograph and Larcher includes it here. So, too, does Mitsuko Uchida on her Philips recording – though, unlike Larcher, without observing every single repeat during the course of the piece. Schubert’s instincts were surely right: the material of the deleted episode is considerably weaker than the surrounding music, and Larcher’s lingering tempo does little to help it. Larcher is also very slow in the middle panel of the triptych, whose C minor first episode, in particular, needs greater urgency. Among rival versions, András Schiff’s finely judged account finds exactly the right flowing tempo for the barcarolle-like opening section, and treats the C minor passage very effectively as an agitato. Generally more successful is the Schoenberg. The Six Little Pieces Op. 19, in particular, are quite beautifully done, and only in the last of the Op. 11 set does one miss the sense of impulsiveness that Pollini, for instance, brings to the music. It must be said, though, that Larcher’s piano tone throughout is considerably warmer and more rounded than Pollini’s, and he has been very well recorded.
