On their latest CD, the Linos Ensemble offer new discoveries and rewarding additions to the chamber repertoire: works by Friedrich Kalkbrenner (1785-1849), reputed to be one of the most gifted pianists of his time. The piano, played here by Konstanze Eickhorst, plays a leading role in both the sextet and septet, and both chamber works in large part offer an enormous wealth of tone colors and manifold opportunities for register shifts. They are complemented by his fantasy for piano on the Scottish song We're A' Noddin (1823), in which he expresses his romantic enthusiasm for Scotland.

The playing of the members of the Linos Ensemble has always been “truly Apollonian” relaxed and lively.
