Notes & Reviews:

Catherine Mackintosh and Geoffrey Govier formed Duo Amade in order to perform the charming and intimate works for violin and fortepiano by Mozart in concert, often with readings from the Mozart family's letters. In 2006 they performed the whole cycle at the Royal College of Music. Volume 1 of the Duo Sonatas was released in 2008 and made an 'Editor's Choice' in 'Gramophone' which praised the musicality and historically informed style of the performances. In this second volume, Duo Amade plays the Sonatas KV 304, 305 and 306 from Opus 1 as well as KV 296, all written in 1778, when sonatas for piano accompanied by the violin were all the rage.

Gramophone Magazine
... lovely, unaffected performances with a disarming air of spontaneity, yet with a sense that every detail has been shaped with care and understanding.
