Robert Fuchs: Trio op.115, Phantasiestücke op.117, Viola-Sonate op.86

A new TYXart chamber music CD series!

This Coproduction of TYXart and the new Joachim Wollenweber Edition refocuses the publics attention on forgotten composers of the classical and romantic periods.
New sheet music editions are created in collaboration with top artists, musicologists and radio stations, with CD recordings being published at the same time.
This second album of this CD series introduces a trio and two duos of the Austrian composer Robert Fuchs (1847-1927), representing gems of chamber music literature that are performed much too seldom. Famous pupils such as Gustav Mahler, Jean Sibelius and Richard Strauss studied with him in Vienna.

From the late studio of the master of serenades - Duos and chamber music by Robert Fuchs Although he composed one symphony more – a total of five – than his immediate contemporary, Johannes Brahms, he went down in history with his five serenades for string orchestra and chamber orchestra: People still often talk about the “Serenade Fox” when the Austrian composer Robert Fuchs is mentioned. Today, his works are rarely seen on concert programs, whereas many of his pupils gained worldwide renown. Only recently, people have begun rummaging in Fuchs’ extensive catalog of works and unearthing one or another gem from it – especially in the chamber music area.
