[ Erato Warner Classics / 3 CD Box Set ]

Release Date: Sunday 1 May 2011

"...surely ranks with the greatest names to have recorded these works. This is a meeting of minds, even in the great concerto-like Kreutzer Sonata. They bring wit, fire, deeply felt introspection and an exhilarating freshness to all 10 of these masterpieces."
(Sunday Times)

"unfailingly civilised and thoughtful...Capuçon and Braley are scrupulously controlled and delicately coloured: there is such concentration in their playing"
(International Record Review)

"Capucon and Braley eschew the bright lights for a place where mellowness, intimacy and relative refinement are more obvious priorities. These are among the smoothest and most beautiful-sounding Beethoven duo-sonata performances to have come my way in recent years."
(Gramophone Editor's Choice November 2011)

"this new cycle is unfailingly musical, and it can hold its own with the best of its predecessors. In particular the French players' performance of the last and greatest sonata, Op. 96...is as beautiful as any rendition that can remember...a finely judged cycle that brings a great deal of pleasure."
(BBC Music Chamber Music Choice Nov 2011)
