Notes & Reviews:

"While Dumay and Kremer are similar in the first three movements of [Sonata No.] 10, Dumay surprised me by giving the most enchanting, gently lyrical reading of the finale I have ever heard. There is a singular tenderness in this performance that alone is worth the price of the set." - Magil, ARG

bbc.co.uk - Matthew Shorter
Pires is best known as an outstanding Mozart interpreter, and she brings a very Mozartian sense of balance and nuance to her Beethoven. Dumay if anything outdoes his accompanist on understatement, with a liquid violin tone, very little attack and no unnecessary inflection. The performances never feel showy, even in virtuosic display passages.
