Iwazumi and Usui pair Wieniawski's Scherzo-tarantelle with Ysaÿe's little-known Saltarelle Carnavalesque, with a selection of violin-piano sonatas that complement the fiery excitement of these two showpieces.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Ysaÿe's Saltarelle Carnavalesque was written in 1882 when Ysaÿe was still 24, and in Berlin, playing as concertmaster in the Bilse Orchestra (which later on became the Berlin Philharmonic). It shows a great similarity in scope, intent, and technical angle with the Scherzo-tarantelle of Wieniawski. Though there is no documented evidence, it is very reasonable to hypothesize that Ysaÿe, who had studied with Wieniawski at the Brussels Conservatory, had taken the Scherzo-tarantelle as a model for his own Saltarelle Carnavalesque. And in some ways, the Saltarelle Carnavalesque can be viewed as Ysaÿe's ambitious response and challenge to exceed the (already formidable) technical demands of Wieniawski's Scherzo-tarantelle. While lacking the flowing melodic contrasts found in the Scherzo-tarantelle, Ysaÿe's Saltarelle Carnavalesque extends the technical ideas found in the former work, and succeeds in creating musical contrasts without ever leaving the atmosphere of extroverted virtuosity. Performed in an custom violin-piano arrangement in this recording, the listener is invited to compare Ysaÿe's work with that of his mentor. Along with these two virtuosic works are staples of the violin and piano repertory that would have been commonly included along with these works in a musical salon setting.
