Using period instruments, Isabelle Faust and Alexander Melnikov breathe new life into these 'sonatas for keyboard with violin accompaniment', a tradition Mozart renewed from within, blazing the trail for Beethoven, Schubert and Schumann. The first volume was widely praised: 'The greater similarity of tone between Faust's sparkling violin and Melnikov's glittering fortepiano (within an airier acoustic) results in a sound more akin to the jingling of small bells. It's delicious' (Gramophone). 'In a world full of star violinists, all with technical facility and individual style, it's rare to find one that everyone agrees is just – brilliant. Isabelle Faust is that violinist' (The Strad).

Isabelle Faust et Alexander Melnikov font revivre sur instruments d'époque ces "sonates pour clavier avec accompagnement de violon ˮ, une tradition que Mozart a su renouveler de l'intérieur, ouvrant la voie à un Beethoven, un Schubert ou un Schumann. Le premier volume a reçu de nombreux éloges : " Un disque à écouter en boucle, en attendant avec impatience le prochain. ˮ (CHOC de Classica). " Cette lecture audacieuse, servie par une violoniste s'impliquant sans retenue, mérite le détour. ˮ (Diapason)

Isabelle Faust und Alexander Melnikov lassen auf historischen Instrumenten die „Sonaten für Klavier mit Violinbegleitung" wiederauf-leben, eine traditionelle Gattung, die Mozart zu erneuern wusste und damit Beethoven, Schubert und Schumann den Weg öffnete. Der erste Teil erhielt bereits sehr viel Lob: „Beide Instrumente übernehmen in dynamischem Wechsel beides, Zweistimmigkeit kommt auf, polyphone Verwicklungen, Fugato. Das Duo Faust/Melnikow scheint dafür wie geschaffen. Keiner will den anderen übertrumpfen. Stattdessen Triumph des Miteinander und Ineinander, des gegenseitigen Raumlassens." (Die Junge Welt)
