Notes and Editorial Reviews


Volume two of James Ehnes and Andrew Armstrong's Beethoven Violin Sonata cycle follows their critically acclaimed performances of Sonatas Nos.6 & 9. Gramophone Magazine called it, 'a compelling addition to Ehnes and Armstrong's remarkable discography.' This new recording features the three early Op.12 Sonatas, which Beethoven dedicated to his teacher Antonio Salieri, alongside the early variations on a theme from Mozart's Marriage of Figaro.

REVIEW:

With some discs, you can just tell that everything’s going to go like a dream… The freshness and spontaneity of these interpretations is unfaltering, as is the instantaneous rapport
Read more and subtle, crystal-clear tonal beauty of the pair’s playing… These are, after all, ‘Sonatas for Pianoforte and Violin’ – a paradox that I’ve rarely heard so masterfully resolved on modern instruments. These players are simply on the same page as each other.
