ANNE-SOPHIE MUTTER
A Biographical Timeline
Watching Mutter play is a pleasure, and not merely because she is beautiful. Her technique is effortless and natural; she seems to have four equally strong fingers that can stretch in every direction. Her bow arm is wonderfully relaxed, her motions are fluid and economical; her bow changes are smooth and inaudible; her tone is famous for its ... Read more in Amazon's Anne-Sophie Mutter Store

Trio of great violin sonatas 8 Sept. 2005
By HB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
While Brahms wrote only three violin sonatas, they are a great trio of works. The first is the most intense, the second the most lyrical and the last one the most inspired with a slow movement that is arguably Brahms most beautiful melody. The two famous musicians here give us radiant performances. At almost 10 bucks less than a full-priced version of this music, this CD represents great value.

A very musical, much overlooked Russian violinist 16 Jan. 2008
By Santa Fe Listener - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Ilya Kaler was unknown to me until I ran across his name in a record review of the Tchaikovsky Violin Cto. on Naxos, only to discover that he has made enough recordings for them to qualify as their house Russian virtuoso. A winner of both the Paganini and Tchaikovsky competitions, Kaler demonstrates the incredible depth of talent emerging from Russai, and not just in warhorse concertos. These Brahms sontas are very lovely, not as individual perhaps as versions from Mullova, Perlman, or Szeryng, but done with genuine feeling ad musicality. Kaler's tone is full and evenly produced, in the post-Poistrakh mode. His excellent accompanist, Alexander Peshkanov, is as good as anyone I've heard short of Richtr or Ashkenazy. In sum, a wonderful bargainCD worthy to stand beside the best.

JOHANNES, ANNE-SOPHIE AND ALEXIS --WHAT A TEAM! 19 Jun. 2007
By GEORGE RANNIE - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
In this recording we have three of Brahms' greatest chamber works (the violin sonatas) played by, in my humble opinion, two of classical music's greatest performers--Anne-Sophie Mutter, on violin and Alexis Weissenberg, on piano. The "wow factor" is very much in evidence in this recording--great music (some of the finest chamber music that ever has been penned) fabulous violin playing and marvelous piano playing coming together in such a way that I just sat back listening in total awe feeling that life really ain't too bad when one can hear music and performances like those contained on this recording at such a reasonable (cheap!) price! (Anne-Sophie and Alexis have a wonderful "go at it" in the fourth movement of the 3rd Sonata--wow!)
Although this disc is at the "bargain basement" price of four dollars and ninety-seven cents ($4.97), the sound is superb. EMI is really to be commended for offering these superb performances at such a "rock bottom" price. I truly loved this recording as you will too if you purchase it!

Wonferful music, with a great value for price. 12 April 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Naxos never seems to disappoint when it comes to releasing high-quality classical recordings at a reasonable price -- and this disc of Brahms' Violin Sonatas is no exception. Ilya Kaler is a wonderful violinist, and with accompanist Alexander Peskanov, this duo really brings the music fully to life. I've been listening to this CD several times since I ordered it, and I think it's a worthy addition to anyone's collection.
Excellent 28 Jun. 2005
By macviolinist - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I received a demo copy of this recording recently. It is fantastic. The interpretation is very thoughtful and the phrasing is wonderfully introspective.

Berg provides us with a beautiful tone color reminiscent of Brahms' Regenlied on which the first Sonata is based. The second is performed with a surprising but quiet elegance that the piece demands, but is rarely heard. The third sonata (my personal favorite) is restrained and longing in the first movement, but warm and rich for the second. The playful scherzo is delicate and refined, but the last movement is as fiery and passionate as a person could want.

In this recording, Berg shows both true technical mastery and a scholarly understanding of the music's compositional underpinnings.

Throughout, the pianist is amazing in his sensitivity and his ability to toss off incredibly difficult passages with uncanny ease.

Probably the most notable aspect of this recording, however, is the balance between the piano and violin. It is extremely heavy in favor of the piano (which I approve of) and gives one a good idea of what these Sonatas for Piano with Violin should really sound like.

I highly recommend.
