ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
From Bach's less frequently heard BWV 1021 sonata to Prokofiev's brooding first violin sonata, the CD ventures through a variety of styles and contrasts. Debussy and Prokofiev, who were two very different composers of the 20th century, show the contrasting uses that each composer made of the breakdown of tonality and form in the 20th century. Debussy's violin sonata, his final work, is notable for its brevity and tight construction, where not a note nor a breath is wasted: clarity, exotic harmonies, joyousness and a startling range of emotions characterize this sonata. The Prokofiev Violin Sonata no.1 is notable for its dichotomy: between light and dark, major and minor, hope and despair.

Bach's BWV 1021 sonata, originally written for violin and continuo, was long thought to be written by another composer. Despite such doubts, it displays a masterly use of polyphonic and imitative counterpoint paired with a lively sense of rhythm and lyricism. The much loved Mozart sonata in G major, the first in his set of 6 sonatas written during his journey abroad in the first years of his maturity, already show his typical blend of humor and exquisite lyricism.
