Beethoven’s Violin Sonata No. 8 is known for its sprightly good humour, while Brahms’ lyrical Sonata is tender and nostalgic for youth. These two greats are performed alongside Debussy’s ground breaking Prelude to the Afternoon of the Faun, arranged for violin and piano by Heifetz and performed by Ukranian Aleksey Semenenko who has been praised for his ‘powerful technique’ (The New York Times).
