Notes & Reviews:

This fourth volume of IDIS's Gioconda De Vito edition features a series of chamber music pieces, many of which never published in CD, recorded by the Italian violinist between 1955 and 1956, when she was at the height of her career. In addition to works by Handel, Purcell, Viotti and Spohr, played with an exceptional partner such as Yehudi Menuhin, the CD offers two master-pieces, Beethoven's 'Kreutzer Sonata' and Franck's 'Sonata in A Major,' of which De Vito and the Italian pianist Tito Aprea give renderings full of pathos and lyricism.
