Violin Sonata, Op. 59
(in four movements) played by Norbert Wethmar (violin)
Arthur Dulay (piano)
Vincent d'lndy's Violin Sonata was composed during the years 1903-4 and therefore represents the composer at the height of his powers. Its construction is similar to that of Franck's violin sonata ; that is to say, it is in cyclic form ; the thematic material of the four movements is derived from three separate motifs which are heard early in the first movement.
Sir Walford Davies

Each player will be asked four questions ; the answers to each set of four questions must begin with one particular letter of the alphabet, starting with A, going on to B, and so forth. *

Twelve Studies, Op. 25 played by I so Elinson (piano)
A hundred years ago people hardly thought of a study as a piece for concert performance. A study, as its name implies, was a technical exercise. But what a magical significance it is given by Chopin, who brought about a minor revolution in music by proving that a technical exercise can be turned into a thing of beauty and a joy for ever !
In an essay on Chopin's Studies,
Op. 25, Mendelssohn said: ' They are all models of bold, indwelling, creative force, truly poetic creations, though not without small blots in their details, but, on the whole, striking and powerful.'
