Dumay, João Pires | Sonatas for Piano & Violin | SACD
Sonata for Piano and Violin No. 21 in E minor, K. 304 (K300c) is a work by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. It was composed in 1778 while Mozart was in Paris. The piece was composed during the same period that Mozart's mother, Anna Maria Mozart, died, and the sonata's mood reflects this.
The Sonate pour piano et violon en la majeur by César Franck is one of his best-known compositions, and is considered one of the finest sonatas for violin and piano ever written. It is an amalgam of Franck's rich native harmonic language with the Classical traditions he valued highly, held together in a cyclic framework.
The Sonata for Violin and Piano in G major, Op. 78, was composed by Johannes Brahms during the summers of 1878 and 1879 in Pörtschach am Wörthersee. Each of the three movements of this sonata shares common motivic ideas or thematic materials from the principal motif of Brahms's two songs "Regenlied" and "Nachklang", Op. 59, and this is why this sonata is also called the "Rain Sonata".
