Electric Fetus

ACCENT presents the complete recording of all Beethoven's works for piano and violin in a 4-CD box set, recorded in 2008/09 by Hiro Kurosaki and Linda Nicholson on period instruments. The order 'piano and violin' may come as a surprise: Even though Beethoven's ten violin sonatas mark the final turning point towards equal rights for the two instruments, the composer still explicitly described them as 'sonatas for piano and violin'. The special feature of this complete recording: Linda Nicholson and Hiro Kurosaki did not simply use instruments of historical design, but rather the appropriate historical Viennese instruments from Beethoven's time for each of the sonatas. Through this careful selection of instruments, the two musicians come as close as possible to Beethoven's sound. Another plus point of the project is the consideration of the otherwise neglected early works for this instrumentation, which thus also acquaint us with some rarities from the composer's pen that are worth hearing.
