Notes & Reviews:

"...The G-Minor Sonata [of Mendelssohn] was first played for the aged poet Goethe in 1821, when the composer was 12 years old. The great man was amazed, of course, by...the adolescent genius. The music is amazing to modern ears as well...Frith continues to lend his art to what is shaping up to be a survey of historical importance, with handsome tone and masterful technical command. Another remarkable project for Naxos..." -Burwasser, Fanfare
