Recommendation of Kreutzer Sonata Recordings?
I'm currently studying the Kreutzer Sonata - Beethoven's Violin sonata #9 - would really like to hear some good interpretations of it. Any recommendations are welcome!
Do you have Spotify?
I have the Perlman recording so I've listened to it a lot, but my favorite performance is actually the film of Milstein that you can find on YouTube.
Too many to mention. Collect them all, and choose what you like. Great performances, both old and new(er.)
I like Oistrahk’s recording, it’s on YouTube as well.
I like Kogan / Gilels myself.
Kopatchinskaja! So much fun to watch, too.
I would just try some by the great violinists. While people may be partial to particular ones, any of them will provide an excellent interpretation.
+1 for Szigeti and Bartok.
Kreisler recorded the whole set. My favorite.
My late father, concert pianist Julien Musafia, recorded all 10 sonatas with both Henri Temianka and Israel Baker, back in the '60s. Those were famous names especially in L.A. back then.
