Notes & Reviews:

Catherine Mackintosh and Geoffrey Govier formed Duo Amade in order to perform the charming and intimate works for keyboard and violin by Mozart in concert, often with readings from his family letters. In 2006 Duo Amade performed the whole cycle at the Royal College of Music. Catherine Mackintosh in particular has long been recognized as a pioneering early music spirit and in recording the complete cycle of duo sonatas is fulfilling the ambition of a lifetime.

"Violinist Catherine Mackintosh and fortepianist Geoffrey Govier, playing on copies of instruments from Mozart's time, have 18th century performing practice down pat: though historically-informed, theirs is natural and engaging music-making...Duo Amadè bring a wealth of insight to their stylish and well-recorded performances, making this release eminently recommendable." -Graham Rogers, bbc.co.uk

"Here's Mozart interpretation in the raw, not overlaid with effusive graciousness, neither apologetically insipid nor crude, but very expressive on its own terms. Listen and ponder. These are committed performances throughout." -Gramophone Magazine
