About the album
Astonishing music, played with passion, verve and commitment.
Thomas Zehetmair provided a tantalizing taste of his affinity with the music of Eugène Ysaÿe (1858-1931) on Heinz Holliger’s “Violinkonzert” album, where the 3rd of Ysaÿe’s Sonatas functioned as a dazzling preface. Now comes a recording of all six of the Ysaÿe sonatas for violin solo. Written in 1923/24, Ysaÿe’s violin sonatas belong, with Bach’s sonatas and partitas and Paganini’s caprices, to the great masterworks of music for unaccompanied violin.
“Like Ysaÿe a century before, Zehetmair established himself as a musician with a personal vision and an inquiring mind, a player of passion and accuracy… He burns himself into the music and disappears.” – Paul Griffiths
