about

Sonata for piano and violin, Op. 6 No. 2 in F minor
Enescu (1881–1955)
1. Assez mouvementé 2.Tranquillement 3.Vif

Enescu was among the greatest violinists of the 20th century. Queen Marie of Romania wrote in her memoirs that “in George Enescu was real gold”. Enescu taught Vasile Filip, who became one of Romania’s most notable violinists and pedagogues. Enescu was also Yehudi Menuhin’s teacher and mentor, who described him as “the absolute by which I judge all others... the most extraordinary human being, the greatest musician”. Enescu was also an exceptional pianist, cellist and conductor, but considered himself first and foremost a composer. His second sonata for violin and piano was completed at the age of nineteen in 1899, then dedicated to and premiered by the French virtuoso violinist Jacques Thibaud, with Enescu at the piano. It was the first work in which Enescu liberated himself from all influences and found his own voice, combining elements of Romanian folk music with the structure of the sonata. The first movement has a tremendous fluidity and chromaticism filled with melodies ingeniously woven between piano and violin. The second movement is melancholic and in direct contrast with the third movement, which features a series of folk dances and motifs that is interrupted by the augmented main theme of the first movement.
