Sonatas For Solo Violin

Sonatas For Solo Violin Lowest new price: $14.24
Lowest used price: $7.56

This is a stunning performance of some of the most formidably difficult music in the repertoire. Written by the foremost violinist of his, and perhaps any other time, these six sonatas contain every imaginable--and some unimaginable--technical, tonal, and musical challenge for the instrument and the player. Ysaÿe's acknowledged models were Bach and Paganini, his inspiration six friends and colleagues whose playing he especially admired and to each of whom a sonata is dedicated, tailored to his instrumental and interpretive gifts. The one written for Kreisler even incorporates a little pastiche of his composing style. Although Ysaÿe had stopped performing, he poured into these sonatas his peerless knowledge of the violin and its resources, along with his lifelong experience of it as an expressive tool, creating what is widely regarded by both players and listeners as a set of masterpieces. Clearly, only a virtuoso of the highest caliber as well as intrepid courage can do justice to these works. Thomas Zehetmair has established an international reputation for his consummate technique, stylistic versatility, fiery temperament, emotional intensity, and adventurous spirit. These qualities are on abundant display on this recording, making him an ideal interpreter for these highly charged, powerful, dramatic, mercurial works for which he seems to have a natural affinity. He tosses off the most hair-raising technical feats with effortless ease: double stops of all kinds, chords, runs at top speed all over the fingerboard, tricky bravura bowings, sound effects. He can make the violin sing, speak, sigh and laugh; his tone is gorgeous, vibrant, pure, variable, nuanced; even the pizzicati sound good. He captures every mood and character of the music: its sweet, dreamy graciousness, lyrical repose, joyful exuberance, driving energy, unbridled passion, inexorable obsessiveness. This is an all-out, no-holds-barred performance that will keep you on the edge of your seat. --Edith Eisler

Arthur Grumiaux was among the most elegant and refined violinists who ever recorded. This doesn't preclude his playing the famous Chaconne with lots of power, which he does. But it means hearing Bach with all technical difficulties minimized to give you a clear view of the music. Sometimes, as in Joseph Szigeti's late recordings (Vanguard Classics OVC 8021/2), there is a sense of struggle between the violin and the music that for more dramatic Bach. Grumiaux allows you to hear everything Bach put into the music, and it all sounds beautiful. --Leslie Gerber

Along with the extramusical significance of the aged Horowitz's return to his erstwhile homeland, there's plenty here for seekers of the essential Horowitz. Perhaps his finest Mozart recording, the C-major Sonata, gets a forward-moving reading distinguished by an Andante Cantabile movement that sings the music with the tonal splendor and command of line characteristic of the beloved bel canto singers of the past whom Horowitz looked to as musical models. The program's remainder is as formidable, and only a curmudgeon could fail to smile with delight at a favorite Horowitz encore, Rachmaninoff's Polka de W.R. --Dan Davis
