Description: If Schubert had not dedicated his famous sonata to the instrument, the arpeggione would have been long forgotten. But this way, the memory of the instrument was kept alive. To complement the great "Arpeggione Sonata", soloist Lorenz Duftschmid has recorded five Schubert songs in instrumental versions (the poems in question are recited before the instrumental version in each case) as well as three nocturnes by an almost forgotten Romantic from the Rhineland: Friedrich Burgmüller. His "Trois Nocturnes", available in various versions, sound most beautiful and full of emotion on arpeggione and guitar, the two instruments so closely related. Lorenz Duftschmid (arpeggione0), Paul Gulda (1824 Graf fortepiano), David Bergmüller (guitar) and two reciters.
