Description
In 1876, ten years before César Francks violin sonata in the same key, Gabriel Fauré made a major contribution to the first flowering of French chamber music with his A-major Sonata op. 13. He even found a publisher for it right away, namely Breitkopf & Härtel in Leipzig. Both the work and the composer were warmly acclaimed immediately after the publication: This sonata contains everything that appeals to the gourmet: new forms, wonderful modulations, unusual tone colors, unexpected rhythms. The publisher seems to have picked out a true gem from Faurés oeuvre, for the sonata soon became very popular, and in 1889, Breitkopf & Härtel heightened this popularity by releasing an arrangement for violoncello by Carl Hüllweck. It is likely that Fauré not only approved the arrangement, but also proofread it. Long out of print, this edition will once again allow cellists to enjoy Faurés violin sonata in a competent period arrangement. "Besser als Camille Saint-Saëns, der das Werk 1873 rezensierte und dem sechsundzwanzigjährigen Fauré eine glänzende Zukunft vorhersagte, kann man dem Werk kaum gerecht werden."(ensemble)
