Notes & Reviews:

"Faust cuts loose with fervor in the Violin Sonata, op. 78. The combination of her passionately Romantic expressiveness with her somewhat cool tone sounds ideally suited to Brahms, who besides being robustly Romantic, was firmly rooted in the Classicism of an earlier era. The sound of Harmonia Mundi's recording, besides being wonderfully clean, draws the listener in, and perfectly captures the intimacy of this chamber music. This release should be essential listening for anyone who loves Brahms. Highly recommended." -All Music Guide

Gramophone Magazine
Teunis van der Zwart used a natural horn from Lorenz built in 1845. He is an astonishingly accomplished and musical player, and he has a superb supporting team.

BBC Music Magazine
It's a superb version of the piece by any standard, the slow movements absolutely saturated in intense Romantic melancholy but fleet and agile in scherzo and finale. Faust and Melnikov and scarcely less revelatory in the G major Violin Sonata... Very generous in terms of its duration, this is a disc where one truly feels every note has been given the space to make its effect.

The Guardian - Andrew Clements
The whole performance [of the horn trio] has a lightness of touch and an athletic exuberance that are totally convincing.
