Bought in Autumn 2016.
First listen: 9-11-2016.
Recording dates: October 2010.
Recording venue: Saal Schweighofer, Salzburg, Austria.
Recording engineer: Jens Jamin.
Running time: 48:00.
Classical relevance: Worthwhile to have next to his orchestral works.
Sonata opus 17.
Sonata in D major.
Thomas Albertus Irnberger, Violin.
Evgeni Sinaisky, Piano.
Partner works to the Violin Concerto on the same disc, which I played some days ago seperately.
The Chamber music by Gál is mild and approachable. No great emotional outbursts, frankly no highs or lows, simply friendly music, with a melancholy tinge to it, especially in the D major. Well written, but to my ears not really extraordinary. They show his inclination to be mild in expression, but not willing to impress over the strength of the music itself. Which is fine by me.
The performance matches the music, and the recording is good.

Unfortunately Volume I of Graupner is missing in that list. It is OOP. The prices paid on Amazon are ridiculous.
