Notes and Editorial Reviews

Pauline Viardot, daughter of the famous tenor, composer, operatic impresario and teacher, Manuel Garcia, and friend of Schumann and Chopin, was a mezzo-soprano and composer. Her Violin Sonatina in A minor reflects her operatic background with its long melodic lines. Her son Paul, the dedicatee of Faure's great A minor Sonata, wrote three beautifully crafted, expressively rich violin sonatas over an almost fifty-year period.
