Julia Fischer recorded the Six Sonatas by Eugène Ysaÿe at the time of the founding of the JF CLUB. Almost four years later, these masterpieces are released on vinyl in the first limited JF CLUB Edition, published by Hänssler Classic. So, in addition to the stream in the JF CLUB in the LISTEN section, this recording is now available to "touch", and this exclusively as a double LP! It will be released on August 20th.
Ysaÿe's Six Sonatas are among the three great cycles for solo violin, along with Niccolò Paganini's 24 Caprices and Johann Sebastian Bach's Six Sonatas and Partitas. What is special about Ysaÿe's work is that each of the Six Sonatas is based on a story or a friendship. He dedicated each sonata to a fellow violinist or violin student and processed common experiences in it. Thus there are references to composers such as Johann Sebastian Bach, to famous violinists such as Fritz Kreisler or Mathieu Crickboom, a student of Ysaÿe.
