- Sonatas for Piano and Violin
I grew up with Mozart; my father was an amateur violinist, and he was very skilled. When my sister and I were “good kids”, my Dad would play for us on Friday evenings when we went to sleep. As such, Mozart has been part of my life for 75 years now.
On this CD we get to hear the following:
- Violin Sonata No. 32 in B flat major, K454
- Violin Sonata No. 27 in G major, K379
- Violin Sonata No. 35 in A major, K526
Performed by Lars Vogt (piano), and Christian Tetzlaff (violin)
The selection of these sonatas for piano and violin by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart demonstrate the composer’s genius and show a wide range of emotions, ranging from serious, to humorous, to joyful.
Christian Tetzlaff is considered as one of the very best violinists in the world. His recording of the violin concertos by Mendelssohn and Schumann, released in 2011 was greeted with considerable acclaim.
Lars Vogt was appointed the first ever “Pianist in Residence” by the Berlin Philharmonic in 2003/04 and enjoys a high profile as a soloist and chamber musician.
