Richard Tognetti And Erin Helyard - Beethoven And Mozart Violin Sonatas (CD DOUBLE (SLIMLINE CASE))

In this landmark recording of violin sonatas by Mozart and Beethoven, pianist Erin Helyard'sintimate knowledge of the soundworldof Classical Vienna is paired with the passionate eloquence of Richard Tognetti on violin: two of Australia's most exciting performers in a double album of chamber music masterworks, including Beethoven's epic, groundbreaking'Kreutzer' Sonata.

The history of the violin sonata, says Helyard, is rooted in the mating rituals of the 18th-century middle class. Music was one of the few occasions where the two sexes were allowed to intermingle, so the violin sonata offered a rare opportunity for men and women to spend time together.

Both Mozart and Beethoven embraced the expressive potential of the violin sonata, drawing new lyrical and dramatic effects from both instruments. The music also reflects the changing roles of women and men, as the 18th century gave way to the 19th. No longer was the violin part a mere pretext for courtship; no longer was music considered a core accomplishment for ladies but a casual hobby for dilettante gentlemen. In these sonatas we hear the piano and violin renegotiating their roles and arriving on a more equal footing.
