Raff: Sonatillen, Op. 99; Morceaux, Op. 85 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
If you plan to buy only one Raff recording this year, then this is the one. These sets of pieces for violin and piano find Raff at his best - miniatures in which moments of ravishing beauty and tender introspection alternate with episodes of wry wit and quicksilver excitement, all written with a master's skill and economy. This is their recording premiere. Neftel and Le Van play them with just the right combination of care, joi de vivre and seriousness. The sound is clear and well forward, with plenty of dynamic contrast. Eric Le Van's insert notes [read online] are a model of their kind - would that more were like them. Recommended without any misgivings.
