Stanford: Music for Violin and Piano
Audio CD | Import
Growing up in his native Dublin in the 1850s and '60s, Stanford was no stranger to high-quality chamber music. As a teenager, he recalled with affection the solo recitals of Anton Rubinstein, Sigismond Thalberg and Charles Hallé, and string players such as Camillo Sivori, Ludwig Straus, Henry Vieuxtemps, Alfredo Piatti and of course Joseph Joachim, a friend of his father. Hearing Joachim play Beethoven's 'Kreutzer' sonata and unaccompanied Bach at semi-private concerts left a deep impression on Stanford (himself a budding violinist). As a result of these formative experiences, Stanford became a devotee of chamber music. The pieces here, performed with delicacy on this reissue by Paul Barritt and Catherine Edwards, were all written between 1877 and 1905, giving a clear overview of the music Stanford wrote for violin and piano. They include the unpublished Violin Sonata No.2 in A major Op.70.
