Brahms violin sonatas

Being attracted to chamber music for violin from his very earliest phase, Brahms would write three sonatas for violin and piano during his career, all written and published in a ten-year period. Here, the distinguished violinist Per Enoksson performs all three of them, accompanied by the seasoned pianist Maria Nyberg. Brahms´ First Violin Sonata in G major is unaffectedly lyrical in mood being comparatively modest in its instrumental demands. His next violin sonata, however, hardly resembles the G major in any of its structural details, but certainly emulates in lyrical character. It is indeed the most idyllic of the three sonatas. In contrast, the D minor sonata is a turbulent and passionate utterance, reminiscent of the composer´s Sturm und Drang-period of his youth. Per Enoksson and Maria Nyberg, with their long experience both as soloists and chamber musicians, breathes new life into three particularly beautiful and masterly composed sonatas.
