The first volume in a new complete survey of Beethovens Piano and Violin Sonatas from the Foyle-Stsura Duo. Michael Foyle: Exploring these Sonatas in 2020 took on a deeper significance beyond the anniversary celebrations. Recording all ten in Mechelen, Belgium, the home of Beethovens paternal ancestors, with much of the worlds population in isolation, his works revealed new layers of emotional intensity and psychological relevance. The Op. 12 Sonatas belong to the last decade of the eighteenth century, a period when Beethoven was conquering Vienna as the foremost keyboard virtuoso of the day but simultaneously seeking to have his compositions published for the first time. In essence, classical duo sonatas for piano and strings had grown from the eighteenth-century accompanied sonatas, in which the string instrument provided a supportive role to the keyboards dominating textures. Here we witness a gradual incorporation of a dramatic dialogue (to borrow Simon P. Keefes term) between instruments which had previously been more important in concerto writing. Beethovens Sonata No. 5 in F major Op 24 is described by musicologist Angus Watson as an exquisite testament to Beethovens profoundly religious feeling for the natural world. The Foyle-Stsura Duo released a disc for Challenge in 2018 devoted to Sonatas written at the time of WWI (CC 72786). “Foyle’s playing is remarkable in its accuracy, tonal focus and impressive range of musical options.” – BBC Music Magazine
