Notes & Reviews:

Saint-Saens's early unfinished Violin Sonata is testimony to his remarkable precocity as a child. His music's universal appeal is demonstrated in adaptations of his Bach influenced Suite, Op. 16, the gracious Romance, Op. 48 and one of his most famous pieces Le cygne (The Swan). The Second Violin Sonata follows classical forms, while the Méditation is notable for an affecting melody that builds beautifully to an intimate conclusion. Volume 1 can be heard on Naxos 8.572750. Acclaim for Fanny Clamagirand's playing includes her 'brilliant advocacy' of Saint-Saens's three Violin Concertos (Strings Magazine on 8.572037).

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
This is Clamagirand and Cohen's second volume of Saint-Saens's violin music on Naxos, and it includes some music that is less familiar. The musicians are excellent. Both studied in Paris, and both enjoy impressive solo careers. They have a wonderful rapport as a duo and a lovely feeling for Saint-Saens's music.
