Sonatas for violin and piano Nos. 1, 2 & 3, op.162

Andrew Manze, Richard Egarr


These sonatas written by a Schubert at the age of 19 and 20, just as he was about to enjoy his first successes in Vienna, are truly touched by grace. Openly inspired by the heritage of the great Classical masters – Mozart, Haydn, and of course Beethoven – and deceptively simple, they benefit here from the talent and the reinvigorating approach of two virtuosos whom one might not expect to encounter in this repertoire. Following their recordings of Bach, Biber and Handel, the Manze/Egarr duo employ their not inconsiderable talents to show us a fresh and different Schubert.
