Schubert himself was an able violinist, whose idiomatic writing for the instrument is charmingly evident in his violin and piano sonatas. Moreover, enhanced by sympathetic recording, Biondi and Tverskaya here play a modern copy of a 1740 violin, and a c1820 Graf fortepiano that vividly evoke this music’s fragrant atmosphere. Arresting spontaneity – invigorated by Biondi’s stylish extempore ornamentation – reveals a potent mix of youthful vigour, ardent passion and delicate poignancy. An essential disc for all Schubertians. Nicholas Rast
