Notes and Editorial Reviews

Parry’s two somewhat Brahmsian Violin Sonatas are highly accomplished works, as are the more modestly conceived 12 Short Pieces. Performed here with a good deal of commitment, they make a substantial addition to the 19th-century violin repertory.

 Superb Music! July 5, 2012 By Henry S. (Springfield, VA) See All My Reviews "Absolutely gorgeous recording! Violinist Erich Gruenberg truly makes his instrument sing, perhaps nowhere better illustrated than in the delicate second movement of Parry's Violin Sonata in D Major. The 12 Short Pieces are broken up into 6-piece sections and sandwiched around the superb Fantasie Sonata. Helios (and Hyperion) are to be commended for offering this wonderful disk of English recital music. For those who like solo instrumental works, this disk is a strong candidate for the Must Buy List. Unhesitatingly recommended!" Report Abuse
