Janáček: Violin Sonata (17:29)
Jennifer Koh, violin; Shai Wosner, piano
Grammy-nominated violinist Jennifer Koh and virtuoso pianist Shai Wosner play 20th-century works by three remarkable Central European composers who intertwine folkloric influences with their own unmistakable originality. The album includes Leoš Janáček’s Moravian-influenced Sonata for violin and piano, Béla Bartók’s impassioned Violin Sonata No 1, and compelling miniatures by György Kurtág.
