Sonata for solo violin, op.115
Sonatas (6) for solo violin, op.27
ArtistsFranziska Pietsch (violin)
For her solo recital, she has put together an individual choice of compositions which represent significant personal and artistic experiences. Prokofiev, to whose works she feels a particular affinity, is also featured here.
Bartók's solo Sonata, written for Yehudi Menuhin in 1944, and the six Sonatas op.27 by Ysa˙e are amongst the most prominent twentieth-century compositions for violin. Bach, the great paragon, is present in all these works. From Ysa˙e's cycle, Pietsch has chosen the particularly striking Sonatas Nos 2 and 3 which are dedicated respectively to the violinists Jacques Thibaud and George Enescu. As an "encore" she plays the solo Sonata op.115 by Sergei Prokofiev which had been intended for ambitions violin students. Transcending its original purpose, however, this compact work is a small stroke of genius.
“in its mix of tenderness, raw emotion and high fidelity this one is rather special” - Gramophone on Prokofiev Violin Concertos
