Beethoven: Violin 4,5 & 8 / Ehnes, Armstrong
Label: Onyx Classics
James Ehnes, Andrew Armstrong
This third release in James Ehnes and Andrew Armstrong's complete Beethoven Violin Sonatas has been eagerly awaited. The two previous recordings received outstanding reviews, with Gramophone praising that, "some discs, you can just tell that everything's going to go like a dream." On this recording, the popular 'Spring' sonata is framed by the strange and beguiling Sonata No.4, and the good natured Sonata No.8. An early Rondo and a set of German Dances complete the generous program.
