Notes & Reviews:

All but the last of Beethoven's ten violin sonatas were composed in a little over five years. Beethoven returned to the genre one last time in 1812, the eventful year in which he finished his seventh and eighth symphonies, and met Goethe during a sojourn in Teplitz. Violinist, Barbara Govatos, and pianist Marcantonio Barone have partnered on Beethoven's sonatas for many years. Ms. Govatos is a member of the Philadelphia Orchestra, and Mr. Barone is a leading soloist and chamber musician, most active in the Philadelphia area.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
I have studied all of these works, listened to dozens of recordings of them, and have performed most of them. The way the musicians approach these works as a series of groups makes it a very easy set to listen to end to end, and in my case, on the same day. The violinist, who has been a member of the Philadelphia Orchestra for the past 30 years, plays a beautiful 1619 Amati violin; and the pianist plays a 1926 Steinway Model D. The recordings were engineered by Adam Abeshouse, and the sound is remarkable. I particularly enjoyed reading Marcantonio Barone's program notes. Like his playing, they reflect a lifetime of intimacy and engagement with Beethoven and his music. This is a Beethoven set to celebrate and to treasure.
