Beethoven: Sonatas for Piano and Violin Nos. 1 & 5

Beethoven: Sonatas for Piano and Violin Nos. 1 & 5


Beethoven:

Violin Sonata No. 5 in F major, Op. 24 'Spring'

Violin Sonata No. 1 in D major, Op. 12 No. 1


Claudio Arrau (piano) & Arthur Grumiaux (violin)

With this release, PENTATONE presents in its Remastered Classics series another album where musical titans are at work. No less than Chilean pianist Claudio Arrau, generally considered to be one of the greatest pianists of the twentieth century , and Belgian violinist Arthur Grumiaux, the most important representative of the Franco-Belgian violin school as well as a truly great violin virtuoso, joined forces in Amsterdam in 1973 to record the Beethoven piano and violin sonatas nos. 1 and 5.

No composer before Beethoven treated the two instruments as equally as he did in his sonatas for piano and violin. In 1797 Beethoven embarked on a journey of writing ten sonatas for this combination. In the first sonata of his oeuvre of 10, a festive piece with a theatrical-dramatic opening, the two parts are already very much integrated. The violin has clearly lost its role of accompagnato instrument. By the time just a few years later that Beethoven composed his fifth ‘Spring’-sonata, one of the most beloved and lyrical pieces of music ever written by him, the piano and the violin had reached a complete synthesis. This unprecedented integration is magnificently revealed by Arrau and Grumiaux on this newly remastered multi-channel Philips Classics recording.

Arthur Grumiaux was a prince among violinists and recorded extensively for Philips/Decca. Many of his recordings – some of them released internationally for the first time on CD – have appeared on an extensive series on the Eloquence label. Here is another – a rare 1956 performance of the Tchaikovsky concerto coupled with his highly-praised traversals of the Stravinsky and Berg concertos.

[Berg/Stravinsky]: "Grumiaux's pure style brings rare magic to both these works. To the Berg he brings above all tenderness and sweetness; to the Stravinsky he brings above all strength and dynamism. The one virtuoso, remaining his individual self all the time, effortlessly encompasses the utterly different demands of each work." Gramophone

“These performances of the five standard violin concertos, the Sinfonia concertante and a couple of other pieces were much admired when they came out on LP, and they continue to earn praise for their crispness, lightness and eloquence.
Grumiaux was also fortunate in his partner in the Sinfonia concertante, for Pelliccia is also an expert Mozartian and they give a performance of this beautiful piece that's expressive but still avoids self-indulgent romanticism. In the solo concertos, too, Grumiaux plays cadenzas that suit the music in length and style. Both Sir Colin Davis and Raymond Leppard are sympathetic partners in this repertory, and since the playing of the two London orchestras is no less satisfying, this issue scores all round artistically.
The 1960s recordings do not sound their age, and are pleasing save for a little tape hiss and an excess of bass that hardly suits the style of this translucent music. However, that's a small price to pay when so much else is admirable, and Grumiaux's fine tonal palette is well caught.”

Academy of St. Martin in the Fields

There is no current listing of the 12 Fantasias in the current RED CD catalogue and it happens to be a much-requested item from the Grumiaux back-catalogue. Here it makes its first appearance as an international CD release.

“The concertos chosen (from the 20 or so that have been preserved) reveal much more variety of pace and style than one might expect from a knowledge of only Telemann's Tafelmusik or suites. Iona Brown plays delightfully throughout and the ASMF seem in their element...The soloist is marginally highlighted and the harpsichord balance is just right."” Gramophone Magazine
