ENESCU George - Complete Works for Violin & Piano Vol. 1

George Enescu (1881–1955),
far from being only Romania’s most important composer, is one of the most colorful musical personalities of the twentieth century. Enescu’s legacy for violin/piano fills two CDs – besides five larger works including three Sonatas, a prodigious Sonata Movement and the “Impressions d’enfance”, there are also a few shorter ones, two of which have been presented for the first time in this world premiere recording – and can be compared in terms of volume with that of Bartók. Here we should also consider the fact that no other composer since Beethoven has left behind a comparably significant oeuvre in this genre, as well as the fact that the golden age of the “violin sonata” was already long past. The selection of this first CD offers an exemplary overview: op. 6 written in 1899 and representing Enescu’s first stroke of genius, the so-called “Torso Sonata” dated 1911, and the “Impressions d’enfance” of 1940 with its seemingly modern style, a work which brings the program of major compositions to an end.
