... The duo :nota bene: stands for soundness and impeccability. These well-balanced partners know precisely what is important. Eva Steinschaden and Alexander Vavtar take a matter-of-fact view of things and are ready to accept a challenge.
In Schubert's A minor Sonata D 385 the violinist, with great self-assurance, brought lyrical shape even to the enormous dimensions of the final movement.
György Kurtág's "tre pezzi" op 14e were played with the appropriate, rather austere sound and form.
Their rendering of Anton Webern's "Four pieces" op 7 showed a fine sense of the effects to be achieved in these miniatures ­ no accent overstated, no inner motion left unexploited.
The "Blues" in the Sonata by Maurice Ravel was imaginatively shaped, with irony and animation; in the outer movements, it was the pianist who set the tone with lines of charm and elegance.
