I was glad to read the last reviewer's comments because I, too, found this disc to be disappointing.
The Brahms Violin Sonatas are among my all-time favorite works. I own many recordings of them, and I was eager to listen to this one when I first obtained it, particularly because the Penguin guide gave it such a favorable review.
This recording does not take flight the way that the partnership of Perlman and Ashkenazy does. Perlman and Barenboim tend to take faster tempos and, as the last reviewer commented, the violin sounds thin in this live recording. Moreover, Barenboim sometimes sounds tentative to me.
The Penguin guide clearly prefers this performance over the Perlman/ Ashkenazy partnership stating that Perlman and Ashkenazy avoid underlying tensions and highlight the more lyrical aspects of this music. This music is intensely lyrical, and yet the complex interplay between the two instruments is highlighted beautifully in that perfectly-balanced recording. Perlman and Barenboim don't have the same advantage.
The previous reviewer liked the Suk/ Katchen partnership. That was my first recording of this music and it opened my ears and my heart to this music. However, I now prefer Perlman/ Ashkenazy to Suk/ Katchen. Other excellent recordings include Szeryng/ Rubinstein, Zukerman/ Barenboim, Amoyal/ Chiu (although the artists' breathing is very audible) and Laredo/ Pommier.

This is the only CD of the Brahms violin sonatas that I own. I have learned to enjoy the violin sonatas with this CD, but I do think that they could be performed better. As one of the other reviewers mentioned, it does seem that Barenboim is somewhat timid in his approach. The violin sound is somewhat thin too. The tempos might be a problem with some, though I can't compare them with other recordings. However, these performances are enjoyable, and the CD is not expensive. This CD was recorded live in 1989. The sound quality is fairly good. There is applause at the beginning of the first track, as well as after the last movement of every sonata. This is not a bad CD, but it is probably not the best choice.

I enjoy the music on this CD very much. These are the complete works of Sonata for Piano and Violin by Johannes Brahms (1833-1897), and they are performed with technical competence as well as an emotional expression which matches the demanding criteria of the these pieces. The G Major Sonata strikes me as melancholy. Although it is easy to appreciate because the melody is captivating, the emotions are difficult to contain. The notes provide a bit of biographical background which aided in my appreciation. Michael Struck writes, "the expressive adagio was intended and understood by Brahms to be an explicit sign of his sympathy for Felix (who had previously played the violin very intensively!) and for Clara." Brahms was godfather to Robert and Clara Schumann's youngest son, Felix, who died at age 24 during the time this sonata was under development (1878-79). The first movement begins with the introduction of a tender theme on the violin which builds and subsides as grief often does. The adagio is introduced by the piano. An even more heart wrenching melody is extracted from the violin. The notes mention that, "the dotted rhythm in the opening of the main theme is the focal point for the thematic material of the two previous movements as well" as the third. Brahms is noted for elevating the use of rhythm in importance equal to the role of melody in his music, so, I found this sonata to be an instructive example of that distinctive character of his music. In the A Major Sonata, Struck finds similarities with Schumann's Violin Sonata No. 1 in A minor, op 105. "The middle movements of both works fuse elements of slow movement character with those of scherzo quality.Read more ›

A well balance duo. These 3 sonatas for piano and violin are very difficult to play. You need the heavy but firm, not strident, Brahms touch. You can find a lot of complexes rythms and it is very easy to lose the tempo, especially in the scherzos. Perlman singing at his best level, a very inspired performance. A good team work of these two virtuosos. Bravo maestro!

The acoustic of this recording is very dry and distant. Perlman's tone in much better appreciated in his recording with Ashkenazy. Baremboim and Ashkenazy are both excellent pianists. It is nice to compare the recordings but I would go for the recording of Perlman with Ashkenazy.
