Music for violin

Violin and piano based music has always been a staple of my classical music likes and the recordings by Augustin Dumay and Maria Joan Pires are amongst those I have collected in recent years.
I picked up this disc of French music for violin and piano recently from an online retailer that slots in well with my Ravel recordings which is extremely well played and recorded.
The way they handle Ravel's Tzigane is with much needed restraint  so we get the infectious feel without just being a moment to the violinists own ego.
