Mozart: Violin Sonatas Nos. 26, 32 & 35
Format: COMPACT DISC
Rougier, Stéphane; Teboul, Sophie
The Sonatas for piano & violin, K. 378, 454 and 526 represent the pinnacle of Mozart’s creativity for keyboard and string ensemble. Their composition is inscribed in the artistic and personal life of Mozart and mark a stage in his development at decisive moments of his life: remarkably, they were not specially commissioned. They were composed in a free style yet the music speaks of the musician’s internal tension at the time when he decided to break free from his links to Salzburg and from the burdensome tutorship of his father to take control of his own creativity. On this release, the Sonatas are performed by violinist Stephane Rougier and pianist Sophie Teboul.
