Using period instruments, Isabelle Faust and Alexander Melnikov breathe new life into these 'sonatas for keyboard with violin accompaniment', a tradition Mozart renewed from within, blazing the trail for Beethoven, Schubert and Schumann. The first volume was widely praised: 'The greater similarity of tone between Faust's sparkling violin and Melnikov's glittering fortepiano (within an airier acoustic) results in a sound more akin to the jingling of small bells. It's delicious' (Gramophone). 'In a world full of star violinists, all with technical facility and individual style, it's rare to find one that everyone agrees is just - brilliant. Isabelle Faust is that violinist' (The Strad).
