Sonata No. 1 for Violin and Piano Sz 75
Among the many outstanding violinists of her generation, Norwegian Vilde Frang is known for her often very personal look at seemingly familiar repertoire. At the Pierre Boulez Saal, she and German-Uzbek pianist Michail Lifits perform Romantic works by Brahms and Schubert, as well as the First Violin Sonata by Béla Bartók, which—like many of the composer’s works—combines influences of Hungarian and Romanian folk music with advanced rhythmical and harmonic elements.
