Two of the world’s leading string soloists have teamed up for Orfeo’s Duo Sessions, and their virtuosity and musicianship carry this 2016 album, even though the CD consists of relatively unfamiliar material. Violinist Julia Fischer and cellist Daniel Müller-Schott have performed as a duo over a period of ten years, and they have established a rapport that is evident in their musical interests and their ability to communicate on the same high level. Here they play four works that test their remarkable abilities and give them considerable room for expression, but the pieces themselves seem to have languished in that special obscurity reserved for much modern chamber music. These works are rarely programmed, no doubt because of the relative scarcity of violin-cello duos, and only Maurice Ravel’s Sonata for violin and cello has a firm place in the repertoire. Yet the pieces by Zoltán Kodály, Erwin Schulhoff, and Johan Halvorsen are certainly accessible and attractive, and these compelling performances will give them a higher profile. Fischer and Müller-Schott are most familiar to listeners in their roles as concerto soloists, though this tête-à-tête shows a new side that their fans will appreciate just as much.
