Charles Ives: Four Sonatas

Charles Ives: Four Sonatas by Hilary Hahn
Released: Oct 2011
Label:
Fierce and dexterous, austere and blithe, Hilary Hahn's range makes her the perfect interpreter of Charles Ives' distinctly American violin sonatas, and this collaboration with pianist Valentina Lisitsa hits the mark. Ives' fundamental mood swings are handled brilliantly by the duo, who skate between savagely difficult technical passages and sentimental folk melodies (listen for the shattered rearrangement of "Turkey in the Straw" on the second movement of the second sonata).
