“Grieg’s Violin Sonata in F, Opus 8, reveals a young composer who has definitely bought into the emotional intensity of mainstream central European romanticism but who has also realized the possibilities of the folk music of his native Norway. This produces a tension within the music that Bell and Bax realized brilliantly, particularly in the ear-catching shift of gears from aggressive virtuosity to introverted lyricism that characterizes the first movement.... The clouds may part briefly at the beginning of the Finale [Prokofiev’s Violin Sonata in F minor], but tragedy and alienation, admirably communicated by Bell and Bax, are the main elements in this monument of twentieth-century chamber music.”
