"... These are live performance, but the audiences on these three occasions are absolutely undetectable until their enthusiastic and well-deserved applause is included at the end of each sonata. This one is definately a keeper ... Very, very strongly recommended."
Jerry Dubins - Fanfare - September/October 2012
"The English violinist Anthony Marwood and the Serbian pianist Aleksandar Madžar have been a regular duo for some years and their familiarity with each other shows, as they achieve a very natural ebb and flow....The disc under review can safely be recommended to admirers of Marwood and Madžar."

Performance ***** Recording *****
"... Anthony Marword and Aleksandar Madzar have lived with the three Brahms Sonatas a considerable while, and their interpretations have matured like good wine. Especially impressive is their absolute unanimity of approach: the sense theu convey that they are not merely equal partners but equally important voices in Brahms’s polyphonic textures. The breadth of their phrasing, the constant search for fluidity, so that each movement sounds as if encompassed within a single expressive outpouring, is also very striking... Marwood and Madzar are so good I’m tempted to make them the new benchmark among contemporary recordings."
Calum MacDonald - BBC Music magazine - July 2012
"...this is duo playing of the highest order. Marwood has made many records, both as soloist and founder-member of the Florestan Trio, and his muicianship and pnache will be familiary to many. We don’t hear enough of Madzar in the UK; there are few to match him in terms of technique an interpretation, and he here proves a terrific chamber music partner. Warm sound ..." *****

Lively and intelligent readings of these well known and loved sonatas. The sound quality is excellent and the playing is balance, spacious and sharp. Highly recommended in a crowded field of possible options.
