The photo on the cover of this album shows violinist Ralph Holmes standing behind the fortepiano played by Richard Burnett. Unfortunately, that is precisely the impression that the sound quality of this CD gives listeners - that the violinist is standing behind or even in a different room than the fortepiano. Played on period instruments - a 1736 Stradivarius violin and an 1830 Graf fortepiano - this recording fails to capture the beauty or sound quality of either of these exquisite instruments
