EDITORS’ NOTES

Here are two musicians at the top of their game playing, on period instruments, with a rare combination of communication and personality. They are each superb soloists, but together they achieve something very special. These are not works for violin with piano, but the other way around—yet, played like this, they amount to a meeting of equals. Faust has already recorded Mozart’s concertos to huge acclaim, and she plays these three equally rich sonatas with the same imagination and fantasy—and Melnikov meets her head-on with comparable flair.
