BRAHMS Violin Sonatas
Augustin Dumay violin, Maria João Pires piano
I had not realized that there are already 19 versions of the three Brahms violin sonatas currently available. Many of these, of course, are extremely good. Nevertheless, Dumay and Pires easily deserve to be considered amongst the best, for their playing is consistently mature, stylistically homogeneous and, above all, refined. […] overall this is a release of considerable distinction.
