Another Immensely Enjoyable Release from Isabel Faust: the Beethoven Violin Sonatas with Melnikov on Harmonia Mundi




Faust is quickly becoming my favorite post-physical media artist. Her Bach Sonatas and Partitas were wonderful, if a little closely-recorded, and I've really enjoyed her Bartok Violin Concerti.

Last night I downloaded their Beethoven Spring Sonata. First of all, recording is extremely roomy and sound is pliant: performers are about 20 seats away, which is ideal for my listening environment and tastes. Secondly, the singing quality of Faust's playing is enchanting. The slow mov't floats on air, and so did I. In fact, at the end of the 2nd mov't, I was so loathe to break the silence, I turned off my system and went to bed.

Great listening session. Patty the Piccolo player in my head was almost impressed enough to take a break for the night. Almost....

Do give the Spring Sonata a try. If you've heard her Berg/Beethoven Concerto album, do tell me what you think.
