Four Italian Sonatas

180-gram LP featuring Nathan Milstein (violin), Leon Pommers (piano)

"The emphasis here is on the violinist's playing rather than on an authentic re-creation of Baroque music and style. Conceding this limitation, much pleasure can be derived from Milstein's beautiful tone and sensitive musicianship. His accuracy of pitch and control of the bow are virtually perfect. He can spin a melody so that it floats effortlessly and can play runs with awesome virtuosity. Pommers gives him able support and the recording is elegantly balanced." — Stereo Review
