[ Virgin de Virgin / 2 CD ]

Release Date: Monday 2 September 2002

Rosette (Highest Award) Penguin Stereo Guide

"Virgin has brought together two outstanding recital discs from the 1990s, of which the Brahms and Schumann originally received a rosette. There is no need to modify that judgement, and in view of overall excellence of this combined release, it is extended to this double CD as a whole. The sound is natural and well balanced." (Penguin Guide)

Leif Ove Andsnes partners first Christian Tetzlaff in inspired and eloquent performances of violin sonatas by Debussy, Ravel, Janácek and Nielsen, and then fellow-Norwegian Lars Anders Tomter in Schumann's Märchenbilder and Brahms' two sonatas for viola, a performance which won a Penguin Guide rosette as 'the best account of the sonatas now on CD, with playing of great sensitivity and imagination... Altogether rather special.'
