Helen Airoff, violin

Beethoven: Violin Sonata No. 8 in G Major Op. 30 No. 3

> with Celiny Chailley-Richez, piano

Airoff worked with both Adolf Busch and Georges Enesco, whose wife – the fine pianist Celiny Chailley-Richez – accompanies her here. Airoff’s few commercial recordings deserve the widest currency. She was much admired by Menuhin and many others in the violin world.

The Violin Sonata No. 2 of Ludwig van Beethoven in A major, the second of his Opus 12 set (along with his Violin Sonata No. 1 and Violin Sonata No. 3), was written in 1797-8 and dedicated to Antonio Salieri. It has three movements:

A typical performance lasts approximately 17 minutes.

Walter Schneiderhan, violin

Beethoven: Violin Sonata No. 2 in A Major Op. 12 No. 2

> with Erik Then-Bergh, piano

Although Walter never enjoyed the international prominence that his brother and fellow violinist Wolfgang did, he was nonetheless a very fine musician in his own right and one whose recordings remain worth hearing. Here, he is superbly accompanied by able German pianist Erik Then-Bergh.

Although Remington was never celebrated for the technical quality of its recordings, whether by accident or design, the peformance as heard here is as clear as a bell, bold and striking.
