German violinist Isabelle Faust brings her “passion, grit and electricity” (New York Times) to a ravishing performance of Beethoven’s Op. 30 violin sonatas. Joined by frequent collaborator Alexander Melnikov on piano, Faust explores these robust works of gravitas, fire, and gaiety that sparked a redefinition of the genre.
