Bartók: Sonata No. 1 for Violin and Piano
Bartok’s two sonatas for violin and piano were written for and dedicated to Jelly D’Aranyi, the fiery Hungarian violinist of the early 20th century who was the great niece of violinist Joseph Joachim. Written in 1921, his first sonata is a rarely-heard masterpiece of epic proportions, recalling the exotic colors and compelling rhythms of Bartok’s ballet The Miraculous Mandarin.
