Sonatas (6) for solo violin, op.27
ArtistsViktoria Elisabeth Kaunzner, violin
I first heard the Sonata No. 3 ‘Ballade’ from the Six sonates pour violon seul, op.27 in 1999, and was enchanted by its sonorous beauty; to me it sounded like the wind. After years of performing all six sonatas, I decided to record them. However, I came up against a paucity of information about Ysa˙e’s life. Only one book has been written about this ‘giant’ (as his pupil at one remove Yehudi Menuhin called him), and it is in English only: Ysa˙e, His Life, Work and Influence, co-written by his son Antoine Ysa˙e and Bertram Ratcliffe. I find the lack of information strange, as Ysa˙e, described by Carl Flesch as the ‘violin incubator of Europe’ and ‘the most outstanding and individual violinist I have ever heard in my life’, is at least on a par with that mysterious maverick Paganini, about whom there is no end of literature.
