EXQUISITE Fine-Art at a Bargan Price...
Sébastien Melmoth | Hôtel d'Alsace, PARIS | 08/25/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

This new two CD set is a real treasure: exquisite fine-art at a bargan price. The content and execution of this Art is virtually unsurpassable.

The splendid Wallin/Pöntinen Duo have produced other fine recordings of Goldmark Goldmark: Complete Works For Violin & Piano, Vol.1 Karl Goldmark: Complete Works for Violin & Piano, Vol. 2 , Hindemith Paul Hindemith: The Complete Violin Sonatas Reger Reger: Complete Works for Violin , Saint-Saëns Saint-Saëns: Sonata for Violin & Piano; Triptyque; Elégie , and Schoenberg Schoenberg: Complete Works for Violin & Piano , among others.

Swede Roland Pöntinen is an extremely talented and sensitive pianist who is amassing an excellent collection of solo recordings: Satie E. Satie - R. Pöntinen , Chopin Roland Pöntinen Plays Chopin , Busoni Ferruccio Busoni: Seven Elegies; Piano Works , Berg and Schoenberg Pöntinen Plays Schoenberg & Berg , among others.

"Not only are the performances in this bargain priced album of outstanding beauty, but also included in this set as a RARE BONUS are the two late Sonatas OPUS 120 in the SELDOM HEARD version for VIOLIN AND PIANO . Here is the opportunity to hear the thoughts of Brahms , revoicing the late works he wrote for Clarinet and Piano,( with a Viola version as option). The revised scoring re-allocates musical lines between the two soloists, in the process making them subtly NEW.
For this reason alone, lovers of Brahms chamber works owe themselves the pleasure of hearing these performances; in the process, perhaps, discovering a fabulous violinist, ULF WALLIN."
