There will certainly be no yawns, whatever you think!
Mr. Ian George Fraser
Both of these performers are noted for their spontaneity in performance as well as being stylistically aware and that is what they provide here in these performances.
I. Giles
On this recording, Gidon Kremer and Martha Argerich put it through its paces to great effect.

At first, I have to say that I'm not a native speaker. so i'm not good at expressing my opinion on this incredible disc fluently as you, Americans do. so please take this in consideration. I have all these beethoven viloin sonata by kremer/argercich. and of all those discs, this one including no.9 is the best. the character of kremer's violin,powerful,somewhat hysterical,is so fit well to this sonata. kremer's technique, as you 're very aware, is incredible. and argerich's piano , not only supportive but also contending is, I think, going along with beethoven's composition intension. if you expect to listen to some powerful, inspiring and knock-out music , then BUY IT! For me, this is my favorite kremer disc.

This recording, made in 1994, is part of the complete Beethoven violin sonatas performed by Kremer and Argerich. Both of these performers are noted for their spontaneity in performance as well as being stylistically aware and that is what they provide here in these performances. Both Argerich and Kremer are regular musical partners so these performances reflect that natural togetherness of a performing duo.

These very lively and vibrant performances of sonatas 9 and 10 make an interesting comparison with the Ashkenazy and Perlman set of about the same vintage. That alternative set of readings is far more weighty than this set and the overall impression is one of physical strength and power whereas the Argerich and Kremer performances are more about quicksilver flashes of light and shade with the performances being very light-footed so to speak.

Both sets are impressive in their very different ways and are a very good example of the desirability of owning more than one performance of key works such as these. In both cases the respective recordings are appropriate to the style of the performance and there is nothing to choose in terms of recorded quality.

So here we have two contrasting sets either of which would be fine as an 'only' set or ideal as an alternative set. Purchasers interested in this disc have every reason to feel that this would be a safe purchase. I would suggest the the boxed set may be an even better purchase.

I bought this CD for the 10th Sonata, as I already had two versions of the famous Kreutzer. However, both performances are really superb. Kremer is a great violinist. He does not avoid controversy. Just listen to his recording of the Brahms Violin Concerto with its outrageous cadenza and you will know what I mean. However, in this recording he plays the music straight and the results are quite beautiful. A wonderful recording of two great masterpieces.

The Kreutzer sonata, Beethoven's Opus 47, seems to have been written quite quickly to take advantage of the presence of the notable violin virtuoso Bridgetower. And it's the kind of work meant to display virtuosity -- I've never seen it as one of Beethoven's deeper statements, but it's surely one of his most enjoyable. On this recording, Gidon Kremer and Martha Argerich put it through its paces to great effect. I've rarely had so clear a sense of two top flight instrumentalists striking sparks off one another quite so obviously as on this recording. It almost goes without saying that the playing is very accomplished, but what's a pleasure is the humor that these artists find in the piece. There are times in all movements where one's response to another's phrasing makes you smile if not outright laugh. AND you feel as you listen that this is how the piece should go. Good sound. all repeats taken (unlike the Grumiaux/Haskil, which is also marred by poor engineering) -- forget Tolstoy (nothing tragic here), and enjoy.

I host a two-hour, classical program on our local public radio station, four-days a week. Yesterday, I was involved in constructing a particularly gnarly spread sheet over the noon hour while listening to the Kreutzer Sonata. I don't know about the Mozart effect, but if you listen to the Sonata No.9 with Argerich and Kremer, you will enjoy the Beethoven effect. Simply a delightful version of the work, and a great CD!I air this particular CD once a year whether I need to or not! What do the reviewers further on down know anyway?
