(cycle to be completed in the following season)
James Ehnes and Andrew Armstrong begin their journey through the Beethoven violin sonatas with the frst four works of the series. The triptych Op.12 shows the youthful composer’s style at its most wilfully subversive, from the energy of the opening work and the elegant wit of the middle sonata to the dazzling virtuosity of the last in the series. More mysterious and subdued is the highly compressed A minor Sonata Op.23.
