Bienheureux Boismortier: Duos for Baroque Flute and Violin, Op 51 (1734)
- Daniel Lewin, violin
- Dmitriy Cogan, piano
The three sonatas for violin and piano of Johannes Brahms are landmarks of classical/romantic music. These great works range from the grace and lyricism of Sonata No. 1 in G major, Op. 78, to the majesty and dignity of Sonata No. 2 in A major, Op. 100, the "Thun" or "Meistersinger" – and on to the passion and tempestuousness of the popular Sonata No. 3 in D minor, Op. 108. All of the power, introspection, and beauty of Brahms are on display in these chamber music masterpieces.
