Notes & Reviews:

"Finally a disc which sensibly brings together Grieg's three violin sonatas is an out-and-out winner...Melodies ache with emotional intensity and even those passages where Grieg falls back on sequential repetition to keep things ticking over appear positively inspired here. Phrases are constantly hoisted aloft with skin-tingling timing, and the recording is unimpeachable...[a] superb value." -Classic CD
