Notes & Reviews:

Ernst (1812 - 65) was a friend of Berlioz, Chopin, Liszt, Mendelssohn, and for Joachim, "the greatest violinist I ever heard". The popular encore pieces by which Ernst is remembered today represent only a fraction of his output. Vol.3 in a series of 7 presenting all his works for the first time shows the full range of his creativity and charm.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
Some of these pieces have simple piano parts, the kind of writing that usually fades into the background. Ian Hobson plays the simple Schubertian arpeggios beautifully and offers a wonderful contrast to, and support for, the cascades of arpeggios, leaps, and bowing gymnastics that Lupu plays so brilliantly. The recording ends with a violin and piano version of the Airs Hongrois Varies, which is normally played as a concerto with orchestra. Lupu dons his gypsy garb once again, and Hobson offers a very orchestral-sounding piano accompaniment to Ernst's mind-bending and finger-twisting high-wire gymnastics.
