Richard Strauss: Violin Sonata in E flat Major

Arabella Steinbacher & Eloïse Bella Kohn
{{ message.content }}

The delightful early Violin Sonata in E flat Major may not be a milestone in the history of music. Biographers have identified the work as a declaration of love for his later wife Pauline. Yet there is more at work in this music – for example in the second movement, when the lyrical Strauss draws one of his seemingly endless melodic lines, or when he demonstrates his profound knowledge of the instrument in the technically demanding passages and fragile moments. Arabella Steinbacher and Eloïse Bella Kohn in part six of the »Moments Musicaux« at the Vienna Konzerthaus.


A co-production with the Wiener Konzerthaus.
