I was pleasantly surprised to see this thread, what a coincidence I listened to an old CD last night of Beethoven’s “Spring Son” and the “Kreutzer”  performed by Menuhin and Kempff It was a 1970 recording on DG Galleria label. Wonderful performance he uses a restrained vibrato compared to Anna Sophie Mutter and not to criticise the later I must say I prefer Menuhin.

May I suggest you check out Menuhin's recording(s) with Hephzibah? Their Kreutzer, their Enescu etc. belong to my favourite chamber music recordings.

No ... but I'm a big Menuhin fan and have bought the huge recent box, which consists of six smaller boxes, as well as huge book. Those smaller boxes are all available separately, and there's one compiling his complete recordings with Hephzibah - lots of great music in there!

The recording's not ideal (especially in the often quite dense finale) but I'm not aware of another one.

Some favorite violin sonatas (in no particular order): Shostakovich, Prokofiev (Violin Sonata No. 1 in F minor, Op 80), Ravel, Janáček, Elgar, Debussy, Schumann (all three), Grieg (No. 3), and all of Beethoven's of course. I'm ashamed that I don't know Brahms' violin sonatas well enough to give them any kind of ranking.

We all have blind spots somewhere. The first movement of his first violin sonata has a beauty that ranks with his best.

Purchased the Franck today but haven't heard it yet. Also realised I only have half of Mozart's.

There are many "complete" recordings of Mozart's sonatas that start only with K 296 because the others are seen as juvenilia (I am not even sure if the authorship of all the early ones is certain).

My favorites are probably the Franck (my favorite piece of this composer by some margin) and the first two of Brahms'.
Struck by the sounds before the sun,
I knew the night had gone.

Against the drums of dawn.
