Notes and Editorial Reviews

[Weilerstein and Hornik-Weilerstein]'s performances of Sonatas Nos. 1 and 2, in fact, match those by Kremer and Martha Argerich on a DG disc... This is wonderful music -- easily the equal of the two previous sonatas -- and the Weilersteins perform it with appropriate passion and abandonment.

-- Stephen Wigler, The Baltimore Sun
