Delius: Violin Sonatas
Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Beneath the shimmering surface of Delius's little-known violin sonatas are the latent exuberance and nostalgic rapture which have made his orchestral music so popular.
Across the decades separating the B major Violin Sonata of 1892 from the Third Violin Sonata of 1930, Delius developed a unique musical language which leavened the post-Romantic heritage of Wagner with French Impressionism and European and Afro-American folk idioms; an intoxicating mix that moved Sir Thomas Beecham to call him 'the last great apostle in our time of beauty and romance in music'.
Suzanne Stanzeleit has been praised by The Strad for her \very considerable style... magnificent flourishes and proud rodomontade.""
