Leonidas Kavakos, the “exceptional violinist” (Daily Mail), follows his spectacular Brahms Violin Concerto recording by teaming up with star pianist Yuja Wang – “a prodigious talent, with an astonishing technique” (The Guardian) - for the great Brahms Violin Sonatas

The album is opened by the feisty Scherzo from the F-A-E Sonata, which Brahms contributed to a composite sonata (along with his friends Schumann and Dietrich). The three violin sonatas which follow were written for Brahms’ muse in all matters violin, Joseph Joachim, who also gave the premiere of the Violin Concerto and contributed its cadenzas.

The album closes with the instantly recognisable Wiegenlied or Lullaby.
