Franz Schubert: Sonatas for violin and piano in A minor, D 385 and D major, D 384
Rondo in B minor for violin and piano, D 895 (Rondeau brillant)
Sonata in A major for violin and piano, D 574 (Grand Duo)
According to his school reports, Franz Schubert always had an “A” in piano and violin. Unfortunately, he combined his two instruments only rarely in sonatas – in blissful singing, dancing and swinging duos of such subtle beauty that they were reduced to “sonatinas” following his death. Benjamin Schmid and Markus Schirmer breathe new life into these violin-lesson favourites. Afterwards they take on the wild dance rhythms in Schubert’s “Grand Duo” and the Hungarian dances in the Rondo in B minor from 1827.
