Medtner - Complete Works for Violin and Piano Volume 2


Medtner:

Violin Sonata No. 1 in B minor, Op. 21

Violin Sonata No. 1, one of his best-known works, was inspired by the myth of Dionysus (or Bacchus), god of wine and intoxication

Two Canzonas & Dances, Op. 43

Violin Sonata No. 2 in G major, Op. 44

Known as the “Spring Sonata”, Medtner’s epically-proportioned Violin Sonata No. 2 is a work of exile with distinct memories of springtime in Russia in its late romantic textures.


Laurence Kayaleh (violin) & Paul Stewart (piano)
