Richard Strauss – Violin Sonata in E flat

Beethoven – Violin Sonata in G major, Op 30 No. 3

Cardiff-based violinist Christopher Horner plays Richard Strauss’ masterly and lyrical Violin Sonata, a work full of romantic emotional feeling, and Beethoven’s Violin Sonata in G major. Written in 1802, the year he confessed his deafness in his famous Heiligenstadt Testament and a time of great upheaval in Vienna, it is a work of great positivity, with a rollicking opening movement.
