Notes & Reviews:

In 2007, Isabelle Faust and Alexander Melnikov gave us an acclaimed version of Brahms's Violin Sonata No.1. On this new release, they complete their cycle with performances of the Violin Sonatas Nos.2 and 3 alongside Schumann's Three Romances Op.94. The program concludes with the F.A.E. Sonata, a collaborative rarity by Brahms, Schumann and Albert Dietrich written in honor of the great violinist Joseph Joachim, who was challenged by the composers to guess who had written which movement.

The Observer, 27th September 2015
The first Brahms sonata recorded by Isabelle Faust and Alexander Melnikov on period instruments made a big impression...Melnikov's 1875 Bsendorfer piano sounds splendidly grainy, transparent and powerful, often overwhelming Faust's gut-stringed violin in Brahms's louder moments, but blending ideally in the elegiac slow movements.

CD Review, 5th September 2015
[A] beautifully balanced performance, and the warmth and intimacy of the recording is an excellent match.

The Guardian, 27th September 2015
Melnikov's 1875 Bsendorfer piano sounds splendidly grainy, transparent and powerful, often overwhelming Faust's gut-stringed violin in Brahms's louder moments, but blending ideally in the elegiac slow movements.
