As well as being a virtuoso soloist and improviser on the piano, Beethoven was also an accomplished violinist – an experience he put to good use in his sonatas for violin and piano.

Isabelle Faust and Alexander Melnikov have mastered these challenging works in several concerts around the world but never before recorded them on period instruments. The immense care they have taken over documentation and performance has enabled them to get as close as possible to the composer’s intentions.

Isabelle Faust plays the famous Stradivari “Sleeping Beauty” built in 1704, Alexander Melnikov performs on an original Graff piano from 1827 from his private collection.
