Notes & Reviews:
Susanna Ogata, violin, and Ian Watson, fortepiano, join forces to record the complete Sonatas for Fortepiano and Violin of Ludwig van Beethoven in four instalments. The second CD in the series features Beethoven's tenth Sonata, Op. 96 in G major, as well as the exquisite 'Spring' Sonata, his fifth, Op. 24 in F major. Using period instruments for which the music was originally written, Watson and Ogata reveal not only the clarity of Beethoven's extraordinary musical structure, but also the beauty and lyricism of these two particular sonatas.
