Notes & Reviews:

Written between 1900 and 1949, these four sonatas for violin and piano represent some of the best music written in France in the first half of the 20th Century. Each work is a masterpiece and together they form a richly varied recital, expressing the gamut of human emotion.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
The disc by Jacques Israelievitch has given me my first opportunity to hear the Violin Sonata of Gabriel Pierné (1863-1937). It is very enjoyable and very skillfully composed. It was written in 1900 and dedicated to Jacques Thibaud and has many of the characteristics of music of that period without the accompanying vices. Jacques Israelievitch has a heartfelt.
