Sonata for violin and piano
Allegro tranquillo; Andante played by Antonio Brosa (violin) Kathleen Long (piano)
To be repeated on July 1
'This important and beautiful work .- .. masterful craftsmanship ... the music is signed in every bar.' These were among the critical comments that greeted William Walton 's Violin Sonata when it was first performed in London last February by Yehudi Menuhin and Louis Kentner. Written for Menuhin, who edited the violin part, the Sonata bears a dedication ' To Diana and Griselda,' which refers to the wives of the two artists, who are sisters. Tonight, when the work is broadcast for the second time, it will be of special interest to hear an mterpretation by two different artists. In August, at the Edinburgh Festival, it may be mentioned, Max Rostal and Franz Osborn are to play the Sonata. Harold Rutland
