Imperfections in violinist Christopher White’s tone mar an otherwise fine performance: occasionally string-crossing is lumpy and shifts are all too audible. However, his partnership with Melanie Reinhard is a sensitive one: phrasing is fluid and spacious and the Third Sonata in particular is delicately characterised. Catherine Nelson
