5.0 out of 5 stars Creme de la Creme, May 24 2000

This review is from: Sons For Pno/Vln (Audio CD)
This is by far the best CD I have of French chamber music, immensely enjoyable. Chung and Lupu bring out the best of the two violin sonatas, the last movement of the Franck piece being particularly infectious. Unlike most other chamber music CDs I have which I put on when I have something else to do, this one makes you put everything down and just sit and listen.
My favourite track though is the Ravel, which has beautiful harp playing by Ellis, very atmospheric and idiomatic. The Debussy will need some getting used to, but as usual with his impressionistic pieces, they are very addictive when you learn to like them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Marvellous (but slightly mislabelled), Sept. 27 2000
By 
"gnox" (Manitoulin Island, Canada) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Sons For Pno/Vln (Audio CD)
This CD unites two sets of classic performances: The Franck and Debussy Violin Sonatas by Kyung Wha Chung and Radu Lupu, dating from 1977, and two 1962 recordings by the Melos Ensemble (Ravel's Introduction and Allegro and Debussy's Sonata for Flute, Viola and Harp). At the time of thisreview,it is listed Kyung Wha Chung as a performer on the latter Debussy Sonata, which is not the case, though the fault probably lies with the way the disc is labelled and documented (you have to read the fine print to see exactly who is performing what). But all four of these are classic performances, with excellent sound (though analogue recordings), and there is no better buy in the catalog than this disc for chamber music lovers!

5.0 out of 5 stars No regret to bring it to an island!, Jan. 15 2001

Tom Hanks won't have a regret on what CDs he should have brought to the island in the movie "Cast Away", only if he had this Chung & Lupu sonata!
