Building on the success of the first two instalments of their cycle devoted to Beethoven’s sonatas for piano and violin (Alpha 240, Diapason d’Or of the year, and Alpha 407), Lorenzo Gatto and Julien Libeer conclude this complete series by recording the remaining four sonatas. Composed between 1797 and 1801, these sonatas are dedicated to Emperor Alexander I of Russia, except for op.12 no.3, which Beethoven dedicated to his teacher Antonio Salieri.Lorenzo Gatto and Julien Libeer’s feeling for melody and tempo works wonders in these pieces, whichthey recorded in the ideal surroundings of the Salle de Musique of La Chaux de Fonds (Switzerland) and the Flagey Studio (Brussels, Belgium).
