Schumann: Violin Sonatas – Anthony Marwood, Aleksandar Madžar

Awarded the prestigious title ‘Instrumentalist of the Year’ by the Royal Philharmonic Society in 2006, the British violinist Anthony Marwood is internationally celebrated for his engaging and insightful performances. For Schumann’s three Violin Sonatas, he is joined by Aleksandar Madžar, recently praised by the magazine Classical Music as matchless ‘in terms of technique and interpretation’. Considered by many to be the product of a tired mind hovering on the edge of insanity, these richly impassioned works are filled with restlessness, melancholy, and fractured lyricism.

Anja Renczikowski - Ensemble magazine (Germany) - August/Aeptember 2014


"...Marwood, an excellent violinist and musician, finds the right tempos for these works, which so often elude others ..."

Joespeh Magil - American Record Guide - November/ December 2013


"This is the answer to a prayer: the finest recording of Schumann’s three violin sonatas, superbly played by both artists and beautifully recorded ... in the Hall’s legendary acoustic ... an outstanding CD" *****

Robert Matthew-Walker - Musical Opinion magazine - November/December 2013


"... the music is full of character. energy and pasion. Marwood and Madzer bring out these aspects strongly; their playing is clearly defined, with precise variations of articulation, and the more passionate movements - the openig of Op 105, the Scherzo of Op 121 - come over with considerable force. Many of the more tender moments are equally successful ..."

Duncan Druce - Gramophone magazine - August 2013


 "... this new account is brilliantly realized and these players succend where so any fail in managing to convince that this, despite its occasionally neurotic weirdness, is actually the most remarkable amongst Schumann’s violin sonatas. This new reading is exemplary in every way, majestically and decisively rounding off what must now be the recording of choice in these works. Highly recommended."

Michael Jameson - International Record Review - July/August 2013


                    Performance ****        Recording ****

"...The sincerity and beauty of this duo, enhanced by the gorgeous acoustic of London’s Wigmore Hall, make for a wonderful listen."

Jessica Duchen - BBC Music magazine - August 2013


 "Probing accounts of Schumann’s late sonatas..."
