Notes & Reviews:

This exciting new program of Violin Sonatas by Johannes Brahms (1833-1897) comes from award-winning violinist Christian Tetzlaff and pianist Lars Vogt as the latest volume in their highly successful series of violin chamber works. These sonatas were composed between 1878 and 1888, and are among the greatest 19th century chamber music masterpieces. . This release also features a Scherzo movement from the F. A. E. Sonata, which was Brahms' contribution to a composite sonata with Albert Dietrich and Robert Schumann in 1853. Christian Tetzlaff maintains an extensive performance schedule and is one of the world's leading international violinists. He has won numerous awards including "Instrumentalist of the Year" from Musical America, and the "Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik" for his recording of violin concertos by Mendelssohn and Schumann.

Gramophone Magazine, September 2016
A breathtaking balance of poise and daring...Tetzlaff and Vogt take obvious pleasure in details without losing sight of the larger picture, whether it's a phrase, a movement or an entire work. Indeed, they sharply delineate the individual character of each sonata.

The Guardian, 14th August 2016
Tetzlaff's distinctive, quicksilver playing, capable of extreme pianissimo, suits the intensity and introspection in each...The performances are agile, airborne, refreshingly unpredictable and alive with exhilarating freedom.

Classical Ear, September 2016
Peers but individuals too; and the tellingly close rapport between Christian Tetzlaff and Lars Vogt is exemplified in the last movement of the G major sonata... it's a graphic study in numerous soft shades, graphically captured here. They exemplify the depth of thought, concentration and impassioned feeling that infuse these interpretations.
