Allegro, ma non troppo. Piers Lane, Tasmin Little. 5. Andante espressivo - Appassionato - Poco più mosso - Tempo I. Ottorino Respighi.
Andante calmo Ottorino Respighi; Tasmin Little; Piers Lane. Total Playing Time 65:39. Little and Lane turn in one of the most satisfying performances (of the Strauss) I've heard. Both sonatas are played here with complete understanding and spontaneity and bring moments of true musical virtuosity. Lane is a first class pianist and forms a fine partnership with Little, whose tone is caught with great beauty, for the Chandos recording is completely real and naturally balanced.

Strauss/Respighi: Violin Sonatas. Release Date: November 2012 Originally recorded in 2012. Composer (1864-1949) Richard Strauss. Composer (1879-1936) Ottorino Respighi. Solo violin Tasmin Little. Tasmin Little has decided to showcase works by Ottorino Respighi and Richard Strauss in her latest recital album for Chandos. She is joined by the well-respected Australian pianist Piers Lane. Respighi is best known for his orchestral music, and Richard Strauss for both his orchestral music and operas, and therefore their chamber music has tended to take a back seat, however unfairly. On this recording we explore a few such neglected works, all of which display the full range of emotion, drama, harmonic exploration, and technical brilliance that characterised romanticism at its height.

The Violin Sonata in E-flat major, Op. 18 was written by Richard Strauss between 1887 and 1888. Although not considered a milestone in violin literature, it is frequently performed and recorded. It is noted for its lyrical beauty and its technical demands made on both violinist and pianist. Following the completion of his Cello Sonata and Piano Sonata, Strauss began working on his Violin Sonata in 1887, and finished it in 1888.
Both Respighi and Richard Strauss made their reputations with large-scale orchestral works, at one time described by the critics as inflated but now recognised as masterpieces. Strauss’s similarly masterly E flat major Violin Sonata is an early work (1887) which reveals the composer’s talent for music in a more restrained textural way, yet is just as full of romantic emotional feeling.
