Beethoven: Violin Sonatas vol. 1

Driver, D. and Hanslip, C. (2017) Beethoven: Violin Sonatas vol. 1. [Audio]

Abstract

Violinist Chloë Hanslip and RCM pianist Danny Driver performed a complete cycle of Beehoven's violin sonatas in 2017 and 2018. Their concerts were broadcast live by the BBC on Radio 3 and recorded on a series of three CDs for Rubicon Records. This is the first CD in that series. Beethoven’s ten violin sonatas represent the supreme challenge for a violin and piano duo, and the drama, visceral excitement and many intimate moments of these masterpieces is superbly captured in these live performances.
