Brahms 3 Violin Sonatas ... Russian Style!

Post by Lance » Fri Apr 27, 2007 11:48 pm

2006 was a busy year for the Italian-based Archipel label. Now we have all three of Johannes Brahms violin sonatas available on one disc Archipel 0355 [ADD, 79:38]. Sonatas 1 and 3 are probably Russian derived from the Melodiya label, and were recorded in 1955 and 1956 in Moscow while No. 2 was recorded in London in 1956. Andrei Mytnik is the pianist in all three sonatas. We have a bonus with this disc, too ... four Hungarian Dances, also by Brahms: Nos. 1, 2, 4, and 17, with Andrei Mytnik again at the piano. The Hungarian Dances were recorded live in 1951, 1953, and 1955.

Andrei Mytnik is the pianist in all three sonatas.
Lance, you should mention, that the pianist is faithfully accompanied by Leonid Kogan on the violin (interesting to see a violin sonata seen from the view of a pianist). :D
I don't know Kogans Sonatas-recording, just his violin concerto, which is outstanding. My brother loves Kogan, I'll make him buy the CD!

If you like Brahm's sonatas, russian style, besides LK and DO,
look for Boris and Julia Goldshtein. :) :)
