Naive, nationalistic and universal: that, more or less, is how Grieg characterised the three sonatas he composed for violin and piano between 1865 and 1886. Fine, gripping, positive performances in all three works from Terje T√łnnesen and Einar Henning Smebye, artists, as it were, to the manner born. Stephen Pettitt
