MEDTNER: Works for Violin and Piano (Complete), Vol. 2 - Violin Sonatas Nos. 1 and 2 / 2 Canzonas with Dances

Distinctly Russian, unabashedly Romantic and full-bodied, yet intellectually devised and highly disciplined, Medtner’s compositions for violin and piano encompass music of rare beauty and power, gratifying for both performer and audience. Violin Sonata No. 1, one of his best-known works, was inspired by the myth of Dionysus (or Bacchus), god of wine and intoxication. Known as the “Spring Sonata”, Medtner’s epically-proportioned Violin Sonata No. 2 is a work of exile with distinct memories of springtime in Russia in its late romantic textures. The first volume of this series is released on 8.570298.
