Raasted: Solo Violin Sonatas

Johannes Søe Hansen (violin)

On this new Dacapo recording, the world première recordings of Danish composer Niels Otto Raasted’s solo violin sonatas are presented. These works reveal the composer's idiomatic Neo-Baroque style, beautifully modeled on all violinists' “Bible”, the solo suites by Johann Sebastian Bach. They offer a unique balance between Neo-Baroque strictness and Late Romantic sentiment, coupled with considerable technical challenges that make them very easy on the ear.
