“Baráti’s performance was, in a word, masterful. Probing, austere, meditative,
it rang with a rare sense of authenticity and almost majestic scope.”
— The Washington Post
There is no doubt that the ten Beethoven sonatas represent the most important body of work for violin and piano, setting the standard to which all other composers aspired for many years to come.
