Notes & Reviews:

It is difficult to think of another duo where each of the partners is a great musician who has reached the pinnacle of perfection in his art, and a composer with his own unique style. But so it happened that these two men, so different in terms of temperament and works, teamed up to leave one of the greatest marks in the history of the world's performing arts. Kreisler and Rachmaninov thought very highly of each other; this is what allowed them, two born soloists, to achieve an unbeaten duo that will remain an amazing example for generations to come. Here, Melodiya presents a unique album of violin sonatas by Edvard Grieg and Ludwig van Beethoven, and a duet for violin & piano by Franz Schubert. The recordings were made in the 1928 in the United States.
