Notes & Reviews:

"Arthur Grumiaux's elegant and mellifluous readings of Mozart's violin sonatas set one kind of standard for these elegant and mellifluous works. Hilary Hahn, who has come to terms so brilliantly with such diverse repertoire at such an early age prove that, still in her musical youth, she can challenge sterling interpretations of Mozart as well. Her performances with Natalie Zhu reveal a mastery of the bold gesture (as in the first movement of the Sonata, K 376) and the flowing line. Her violin sounds stentorian in the most commanding phrases, occasionally making an almost instantaneous connection between ear and gut... the stirring recorded sound adds an extra measure of urgency to an already urgent recommendation. Essential." -Robert Maxham, Fanfare

BBC Music Magazine
... there is plenty to enjoy in these beautifully finished performances, characterised by affectionate, espressivo phrasing and long singing lines.
