Tchaikovsky Meditation from Souvenir d’un lieu cher 10’
Schubert Grand Duo in A 22’
Schubert’s Grand Duo for violin and piano is in fact a Grand Sonata by another name, a relaxed and assured work by a 19-year-old truly finding his feet as a composer of instrumental music. Beethoven’s sonata, composed sixteen years earlier, is similarly genial, yet at the same time shot through with brilliance and wit. By contrast, Tchaikovsky’s Meditation is a melody of typically deep and Romantic soulfulness.
