Beethoven: Violin Sonatas Vol 1 (Op 12 No 1, Op 23&hellip ~ Ludwig van Beethoven

Do we really need another Beethoven violin sonata cycle? When it is as dramatic and colourful as presented here, assuredly yes. The blend between these two performers is nigh on perfect. This CD takes immediately its place among -- but not above -- the greats (Oistrakh and Oborin, Perlman and Ashkenazy and Kremer and Argerich). A terrific CD and a real feather in the cap of the Wigmore Hall. Bravo!

5.0 out of 5 stars Heroic music, 9 Jan 2010
A fabulous Eroica and a stunning eighth that makes you reconsider its usual ranking as one of the lesser symphonies. Strongly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Neglected gems, 5 May 2009
This package contains some wonderful material from two unjustly neglected albums. True, some songs are stronger than others but there is not one single duff track on either of these CDs. And if the albums were not commercially successful that tells us more about the music buying public than the sincerity and skill of the artist.
