Elgar's Violin Sonata "is a work of nobility and tenderness," according to Renaud Capuçon. He has recorded it with pianist Stephen Hough for his album dedicated to this English composer. Discover: https://w.lnk.to/ecsLY

"The long phrases in the slow movement make me think of someone who is in love, but afraid to say it," says the French violinist of the sonata. Stephen Hough feels that this expressive landscape is "very English in its combination of reserve, frustration, and passion. Elgar’s music is not obvious … it can go off in strange directions. Like the violin concerto, the sonata is dangerous music, in that it can get so close to sentimentality, but it never tips over the edge."

Renaud Capuçon's Elgar album brings together this 1919 work with the Violin Concerto, recorded with Sir Simon Rattle and the London Symphony Orchestra, the orchestra which gave its premiere in 1910 with Fritz Kreisler as soloist.
