Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Sonatas For Fortepiano And Violin
Isabelle Faust, Alexander Melnikov
In this first volume of Mozart’s duos, Isabelle Faust and Alexander Melnikov
revive on period instruments the tradition of the ‘sonata for keyboard
with violin accompaniment’.
Born in the middle of the Age of Enlightenment, this rather unusual concept continued to thrive in the era of Viennese Classicism even if, long before Beethoven, Mozart swiftly sealed its fate by instigating (or, in a sense, restoring) an increasingly lively conversation between the two instruments. What a beautiful couple they were to make! Here is the first chapter in their story.
