Catalogue No: ONYX4208

This, the third 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’.

On the new album the popular ‘Spring’ sonata is framed by the strange, beguiling 4th sonata and the good natured 8th. An early Rondo and a set of German Dances complete the generous programme.
