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.

The Program

“One of the leading players of her generation.”
– Telegraph (U.K.)
“She delivered purity and exceptional articulation: here was a sound to which your ears were drawn, magnetically.”
– Bachtrack


1941 Broadway
