Notes & Reviews:

The Graun Brothers, "fiery instrumental composers" who occupied important posts in the Berlin Royal Orchestra, numbered among the most famous musicians of their times and were known far beyond Berlin and Potsdam. In the field of chamber music it was the genre of the trio sonata for two violins and basso continuo that was of special interest to the two brothers. Here they were completely in their element: violin parts full of technical and virtuosic nuances, rhythmically electrifying formulations, a dialogue of the instruments verging on a contrapuntal conversation.

"This disc presents five of the 16 described as being for two violins and bass, probably one of the most common chamber groupings of the period...The performers are fortunately evenly matched. Both Anne Schumann and Dorothea Vogel have a similar sound and technical ability...Of special note is that Remy has chosen not the expected harpsichord or clavichord but rather the fortepiano for the continuo instrument. The sound is thus considerably richer, the colors blending quite nicely. Purists might find fault with this choice, but it is true that during this period the use of keyboard was not specified. Since he makes a convincing point that the fortepiano was in use by the time the bulk of these were written, there is no reason not to use one... Recommended." - Fanfare
