Notes & Reviews:

International Record Review, March 2015
There are wonderful insights from this partnerships.

The Strad, March 2015
A cherishable recording, captured in atmospherically glowing sound.

BBC Music Magazine, January 2015
Dumay and Lortie bring fresh insights to such well-loved music. Their approach to the G major Sonata is particularly mesmerising...Needless to say, the rest of this beautifully engineered disc abounds in oustanding and musically perceptive playing, a superbly judged mixture of warmth and purity in the A major Sonata, and high-octane urgency.

Following their critically acclaimed recording of the Franck & Strauss Violin Sonatas for Onyx, Augustin Dumay and Louis Lortie turn now to Brahms. His three Violin Sonatas form the most important body of music for this combination since Beethoven. From the reflective melancholy of the G major, to the sunny A major and ending with the grand and passionate D minor work, Brahms’s creative genius pushed the violin sonata form into new territory and reveal Brahms at the height of his powers.

MusicWeb International, 26th January 2015
I am enthralled by this new recording of warm and deeply felt accounts by Dumay/Lortie.

International Record Review, March 2015
There's a lot to enjoy in these performances... Dumay and Lortie phrase beautifully and play with real individuality throughout.
