Ludwig Thuille, a staunch friend of Richard Strauss, was leader of the ‘Munich School’ of composers, which reflected the influence of Liszt, Wagner and Thuille’s own teacher, Rheinberger. The Violin Sonata No. 1 in D, which Strauss admitted was more advanced than his own works of the time and here receives its first recording, is the latest addition to the ongoing revival of his chamber music. Dedicated to Henri Marteau, one of the greatest violinists of the age, the much later Violin Sonata No. 2 in E minor reveals similar lyrical strengths. Thuille’s Piano Quintet, Op. 6 and Sextet, Op. 20 can be heard on Naxos 8570790.
