Notes & Reviews:

Performing and recording Beethoven's complete sonatas for violin and piano has been a dream of Elizabeth Wallfisch and David Breitman for years. This is the ensemble's second volume in their endeavor, wrapping up the project with Sonatas No. 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10. It is rare that these pieces are performed on historical instruments, largely due to obstacles in performing live. These works, however, are beautifully performed her on period instruments, just the way Beethoven heard them. Elizabeth Wallfisch is a concertmaster, music director, and respected interpreter of 17th, 18th, and 19th century violin music. Her extensive discography includes a wide array of pieces, from Early Baroque, to Classical violinist-composers. David Breitman performs frequently alongside soloists and in chamber ensembles. He also recently recorded Beethoven's cello sonatas with Jaap ted Linden.
