I'm sure this question has been covered in previous discussions, but I'll ask it anyway. :D
What is your favorite violin sonata, and why? :)
Violin sonatas are kind of the undervalued part of our repertoire. They're chamber music, not concertos, and I think this can be somewhat off-putting.
I've been listening to a lot of sonatas lately, and I really love the Debussy. I like all three Brahms sonatas, as well.
The Debussy has those wonderful open harmonies that he is known for, and it straddles the line between Romantic and modern music. :D
I'd love to hear about your favorite sonatas, so please feel free to share!
