Saint-SaŽnsís early unfinished Violin Sonata is testimony to his remarkable precocity as a child. His musicís universal appeal is demonstrated in adaptations of his Bach influenced Suite, Op.16, the gracious Romance, Op.48 and one of his most famous pieces, Le cygne (The Swan).

The Second Violin Sonata follows classical forms, while the Mťditation is notable for an affecting melody that builds beautifully to an intimate conclusion.

This release brings together versions of works by Saint-SaŽns which are rarely heard in recordings. Volume 1 in this complete edition was released in April 2013 and has been warmly received by broadcasters and reviewers. German blog 'The Listener' admires how ďthe virtuosity of the music is presented seemingly effortlessly by both performers".
