Here's a new album that brings together two of Canada's most prominent young musicians, Andrew Wan, concertmaster of the Orchestre symphonique de Montrťal since 2008, and Charles Richard-Hamelin, Silver medalist and winner of the Krystian Zimerman award at the International Chopin Piano Competition in 2015. For this first studio collaboration, they recorded the three sonatas of Beethoven's Op.30, one of the most important works for violin and piano. Wan and Richard-Hamelinís playing is dynamic and expressive and the result is nothing short of impressive.

These works by Beethoven highlight three facets of the composerís personality. While Sonata no.6 shows Beethovenís calmer side, Sonata no.7 reveals a more tempestuous and tormented man, and the charming Sonata no.8 displays a touch of humour.

This is the first album of three by Wan and Richard-Hamelin that will cover the complete sonatas for violin and piano of Ludwig van Beethoven.
