I like nothing better than chamber music,” Saint-Saëns once wrote to a violinist friend and, indeed, he did much to promote the genre in Paris during the second half of the 19th century. Prominent among his works for violin and piano is the technically challenging 1885 Violin Sonata No 1 which balances passion with clarity. The Triptyque of 1912 shows his mastery of melody, rhythm and metre, and elsewhere in this first volume one finds numerous examples of his instinct for charm and characterisation.
 

 "... This is a most enjoyable program, and it’s one perfomed to the highet standards by two exceptionally talented artists. Very strongly recommended."

Jerry Dubins - Fanfare - November-Devember 2013


                         ***** (Very Good)

Remy Franck - Pizzicato magazine - September 2013


                      **** - Excellent disc 

Jacques Bonnaure - Classica magazine - July/August 2013


 "Performances that set a new standard in the playing of Saint-Saëns violin music ... Complemented by exemplary engineering, this fine release should win this glorious music many new friends."

Julian Haylock - The Strad - July 2013
