PERFORMER: Leonidas Kavakos (violin)
CATALOGUE NO: CD-1046
The incredible transparency demanded by Ysaÿe’s six Op. 27 Solo Violin Sonatas is achieved with supreme poise and assurance in this virtuosic reading by Leonidas Kavakos. He combines clarity of articulation in the Bach-like arpeggiated figurations with a plush and richly persuasive tone well-suited to Ysaÿe’s Romantic preoccupations.
