Violin: Leonard Busfield
Pianoforte: Vera McComb Thomas

The Eighth Sonata
This Sonata, the last of the three that make up Beethoven's Op. 30, contains a large proportion of captivatingly merry music.
The very first notes of the First Movement are infectiously gay, and the alternations of the bustling, running, twelve-notes-to-a-bar motif, and the dancing six-notes-to-a-bar motif, are piquantly kept up.
A rather long, demurely attractive Minuet, in Haydnish style, follows as Second Movement.
The Finale dances along, fleet-footed, innocently joyous, full of the delight of graceful motion.
