11/14 Violin Sonata 7 and 6 w Vengerov/Kavakos

Maxim Vengerov
Beethoven's Violin Sonata No 7 Opus 30, No 2 is not as famous as No. 9 "the Kreutzer" or No 5 "Spring" - but it has it's own sense of lyrical beauty.  In C minor (which means it's "serious") and written in his "heroic" period, it's contemporary with other works such as the "Tempest" and "Hunt" piano sonatas.  Below, parts 1 through 4 are Violin Sonata No 7 Opus 30, No 2 (1802)  with violinist Maxim Vengerov with Lilya Zilberstein in 2006, Moscow.  Part 5 through 7 are Violin Sonata 6 in A Op.30 No. 1 (1802) performed by Leonidas Kavakos and Enrico Pace...another great duo composition.

And here is the original manuscript for Violin Sonata 7 -   I can't get enough of these things!
Leonidas Kavakos
