Applauded by an ageing Brahms, and sometime teacher of Mahler, Sibelius, Wolf, Zemlinsky and others, Robert Fuchs was a prolific and seminal figure in fin-de-siècle Viennese musical life. As these superb performances will confirm, his quintessentially late Romantic style is at once engaging, yet utterly distinctive. Arnold Steinhardt, leader of the Guarneri Quartet and his pianist brother, Victor, acquit themselves magnificently throughout. Michael Jameson
