Notes & Reviews:

In the early part of his musical career, before he became one of the most revered conductors of his time, Bruno Walter saw himself as a conductor-composer music like his friend and role model, Gustav Mahler. His large-scale Piano Quintet, couched in the late-Romantic idiom, is a powerful expression of Walter's consummate compositional skill. The Violin Sonata in A Major, Walter's last chamber work, offers a study in expressive contrasts, its unsettled modds reflective of the time in which it was written.

The Guardian, 1st September 2016
His 1908 Violin Sonata, given a full-bodied, spirited performance by violinist Ekaterina Frolova and pianist Mari Sato, is an ambitious, sweeping work...Walter chose the right career path, but this recording provides interesting insights into both a great conductor's mind and the musical hothouse that was early 20th-century Vienna.
