Ludwig van Beethoven: Violin sonata Nr. 5 F Major op. 24 »Frühlingssonate«; Violin sonata Nr. 7 C Minor op. 30/2
Franz Schubert: Sonata A Major D 574 op. posth. 162 »Duo«
Violinist Renaud Capuçon and pianist David Fray have not built their reputations solely on their celebrated performances as soloists with orchestras; indeed, both have always been passionately dedicated to chamber music. The genre demands that performers listen closely and respond to one another, so the two French masters always acted at peer level. This can only be an advantage in playing the announced Beethoven sonatas full of pathos, passion and energy that explode the restrictions of what was usual in chamber music of the time. Schubert, only 20 years old at the time, built on the Beethoven foundation in his Violin Sonata in A major and meshed the two instruments tightly with each other. Considering Fray’s highly cultivated keyboard touch and immaculately effervescent playing as well as Capuçon’s beautifully contoured, wonderfully shimmering tone on his Guarneri del Gesù violin »Panette« of 1737, this promises to be a true dialogue during which both artists are aware that they can be good on stage with the inspiration of the moment only as a duo!
