Boundless is a new album performed by Zachary Carrettin (violin) and Mina Gajic (piano).  It features Schubert Sonatinas recorded in DXD at a Recital Hall at a Private Wildlife Sanctuary in Boulder, Colorado on July 29-31, 2019.  The album was produced by Erica Brenner and engineered by Daniel Shores using the Horus Analog to Digital Converter from Merging Technologies.

In recording these compositions, the earliest revelations of Schuberts boundless lyricism in his early romantic compositional voice as applied to instrumental chamber music, we sought to pay homage to the original intent as well as the authentic sounds. The Sonatinas, (a posthumous title), were written for music of the chamber, a time of gathering, sharing, and delighting in the discoveries, creations, and talents of others.

The Sonatinas are a revealing view into the birth of Schuberts romantic voice. Whether the sturm und drang of the G Minor and its Haydn-esque representation of drama, the early Beethovenian poise, manner, and delight in the D Major, or the unabashed dramatic and unapologetic severity in the A Minor, (Lord Byrons Manfred was written the same year!), these works show us young Schuberts boundless expressive spirit.

The piano is an Érard concert grand, built in Paris circa 1835. It is in immaculate condition, superbly conditioned by Frits Janmaat at Maison Érard in Amsterdam. Parallel-strung, and with dampers beneath the strings, the registers have clear distinction; the action is agile; the rich tonal depth is special. The violin is a rare find, built by Franz Kinberg after the Second World War and set up for late Classical and early Romantic historical instrument performance. The gut-strung violin is paired with an extraordinary bow made by John Dodd, London, circa 1800. This pre-modern, transitional bow is a perfect example of the bows still in favor in Vienna at the time the Sonatinas were composed.
