Description: Although probably composed during the 1850s, Farrenc's full-scale, 30-minute sonata with its virtuosic piano writing is of the gracefully melodic type that Schumann and Mendelssohn were writing in the 1830s. Last April, the first recording of Viardot-García's Sonatine appeared on a two-disc set with an hour or spoken word German and 40 mintes of Chausson and Fauré. If you didn't want to blow $24.98 for that shelf-crowder to get her 11-minutes of salon charm, delicacy and panache, this program will likely be more appealing. Annette-Barbara Vogel (violin), Ayako Tsuruta (piano). SACD hybrid.
