The recording collaboration with the great violinist Salvatore Accardo, which began 29 years ago,continues. In this project Maestro Accardo plays with the pianist Stefania Redaelli. This album contains the Sonatas No. 1 Op. 8, No. 2 Op. 13 and No. 3 Op. 45 by the composer Edvard Grieg where the violin is the protagonist.

Grieg wrote that he considered the Violin Sonatas to be among his best works, each of which represented a different phase in his development "the first a little naïve, but rich in ideas, the second Nordic and the third with a broader horizon." fonè's Giulio Cesare Ricci recorded this album in the Sala dell'Ermellino — Casa della Musica in Milan on February 12-13, 2020. For this prestigious recording Ricci used the legendary original Neumann U47, U48 tube microphones from the years 1947 and 1949 with a very natural tone using field effect bi-microphone techniques. These microphones have an important history: they are in fact the original microphones used to record, among others, the Beatles performances in the Abbey Road Studio and by RCA for the "Living Stereo."

For the SACD Ricci used the DSD format, on Pyramix using the dCS A / D and D / A DSD converters.
From 1998 to today he records in DSD 64 x 44.1 bit with Signoricci ex Philips workstations that mount Pyramix programs, 904 analog / digital dCS converters and 954 digital / analog dCS converters, all this to make the best SACD fonè. A state-of-the-art system with no sound manipulation, no equalization, no reverb, no compression and expansion ... but natural sound with true timbre to best enhance the acoustics of the Sala dell'Ermellino. fonè has been offering for almost 40 years recordings made in the name of technological refinemnt and aimed at recovering the original musical atmospheres.

The mastering of the SACD was done by Ricci using the Signoricci's analog and tube system. The result of this recording is fantastic.
