Strauss | Enescu
Kolbjørn Holthe and Tor Espen Aspaas | 2L34SACD
Richard Strauss' first and only sonata for violin and piano and George Enescu's third, the former as radiant, heroic and sublime as the latter is dark, melancholy and feverish; it is in their transcendent qualities that the two sonatas are related. Both works signify an important milestone in their respective creators' development as composers; they also constitute milestones in our own development as instrumentalists, both individually and as a duo.
Since the start of their collaboration in 1991, duo Kolbjørn Holthe and Tor Espen Aspaas have regularly performed in concert and on tour, programming a substantial portion of the violin and piano repertoire - including sonata cycles by Beethoven and Brahms.
