By A Customer on Nov. 13 1998
Format: Audio CD
This disc provides an excellent opportunity to acquaint yourself with some of Schumann's most beautiful and thoughtful music. The finale of Brahms's Fourth Symphony owes a clear debt to the groundbreaking work of Schumann in the initial movement of the second sonata. (Brahms had steeped himself thoroughly in Schumann's music.) Kaler plays with a marvellous tone, and he and Slutsky understand this music very well. The only version I like better is that of Kremer and Argerich (DG) who are a little more atmospheric in the dark and mysterious reaches of Sonata No. 1. (Another version of the second sonata to consider is that of Ferras and Barbizet which appears as filler on Ferras's DG Double album of great violin concertos.) The recorded sound is superb.

The CD is a good CD for it's price. HOwever, me and my friend were playing this violin sonata and we wanted to get some interpretations from this CD. However, they are rythmically off in the sonata No 1, 1st movement. They sort of start out like in triplets and the piano is TOTALLY overpowering the violin on this CD. Also, in the end where the violin has the run ups, the tempo has changed compared with the beginning. It's as if the Kaler and SLutsky just went in and said "okay, let's play this, get our money, and go on to our next track." However, I only find complaint with the 1st movement of sonata no 1. However, it is still worth a good buy for the price you pay.
