And the hits just keep on coming – ah, nice.


No liner notes on this budget disc but it’s such a pleasant recording you really don’t need to know anything about it – just sit back, get a glass of wine and relax.


  • 1-4: Sonata No. 5 in F Major for Violin and Piano, Opus 24 – “Spring”
  • 5-7: Sonata No. 9 in A Major for Violin and Piano, Opus 47 – “Kreutzer”


The easiest review I’ve had to do thus far. I like it. Whenever I hear this recording, I can’t help but think of the scene in “Love & Death” where Woody Allen and Diane Keaton play the opening strains of the Spring Sonata.
