Notes and Editorial Reviews

This recording is the logical - and awaited - complement to the 'Fugue for Solo Violin' set released in the spring of 2013, on the occasion of the publication of Tedi Papavrami's autobiography by Robert Laffont. It features the Sonatas for solo violin by Eugène Ysaÿe, an extraordinary violinist who, in his time, played a role comparable to that of Niccolò Paganini, just a century earlier. Ysaÿe dedicated each of these six sonatas to one of the very great violinists of his time (Szigeti, Thibaud, Enesco, Kreisler...). They constitute heights of virtuosity that few musicians can envisage confronting and are, at the same time, musical works of the first rank. Tedi Papavrami has chosen to supplement this cycle with a Read more work that Ysaÿe composed in 1915 and dedicated to his student, Queen Elisabeth of Belgium. Read less
