Notes & Reviews:

The Swiss composer Hans Huber is undoubtedly one of the more unjustly neglected of European composers of his generation (1852-1921). It is to be hoped that this recording of three of his violin sonatas will help establish his standing, for the range and extent of his output demand the attention of music lovers.

Fanfare Magazine
At times of heightened emotion, Colliard seems to allow the music to take him outside his violinistic self, and in those moments, he either tends to scoop or to play with a raw and even unrefined energy (all of which the recorded sound tends to transmit, and all of which may dismay some as much as it carries others along with him). Nonetheless, he manages, with Altwegg, to build a powerful case for Huber's sonatas, which violinists and aficionados of the instrument's repertoire should eagerly concede. Strongly recommended to them as a most welcome discovery, but to general listeners as well, who should be excited to share in it.
