NEW MUSIC TUESDAY | Violinist Philippe Graffin – Ysaye Solo Violin Sonata No. 7 [RECENT DISCOVERY]

Violinist Philippe Graffin performing the debut recording of the recently discovered 7th Solo Violin Sonata of Eugene Ysaye

French violinist Philippe Graffin performing the debut recording of the recently discovered 7th Solo Violin Sonata of 20th Century Belgian violin virtuoso and composer, Eugene Ysaye.

 “Eugene Ysaye is a figure of the violin who has fascinated me since I was a child … his solo violin sonatas are, for me, a doorway into a very poetic and imaginative way of using the instrument … and to my amazement, there is now actually a 7th Solo Violin Sonata …” Philippe has this week told the Violin Channel.

 “This work was written in 1923, and is a manuscript from which was part of a sketch book that was recently given to the Royal Conservatory of Brussels … I was amazed that such an incredibly beautiful work has remained hidden for so long …” he has said.

 “I think this is an important sonata that will hopefully soon be a part of our core repertoire … and I hope listeners will be drawn to the subtle Spanish pride in the writing of the first movement and the sadness of the second movement … it’s incredibly imaginative and poetic writing for the violin.”
