This, the final release in the complete Beethoven Violin Sonatas from James Ehnes and Andrew Armstrong will be eagerly awaited by their fans. The earlier albums ONYX4170 (Nos.9 ‘Kreutzer’ & 6) and ONYX4177 (Nos.1-3, Variations WoO40) received outstanding reviews. Gramophone said of ONYX4177 ‘ With some discs, you can just tell that everything’s going to go like a dream’ The third in the series, ONYX4208 (Nos 4, 5 & 8) received similar praise ‘The freshness and spontaneity of these interpretations is unfaltering, as is the instantaneous rapport and subtle, crystal -clear tonal beauty of the pair’s playing’ wrote the reviewer in Gramophone , ‘which leaves me in something of a dilemma when it comes to describing a disc that shares the same qualities in such generous abundance that it’s hard to listen without smiling’.
