  • Leonidas Kavakos, the exceptional violinist (Daily Mail) follows his spectacular Brahms Violin Concerto recording by
    teaming up with star pianist Yuja Wang a prodigious talent, with an astonishing technique (The Guardian) for the great
    Brahms Violin Sonatas.

    Leonidas Kavakos s third release for Decca makes a perfect supplement to his acclaimed Brahms Violin Concerto disc with
    Riccardo Chailly.

    For the three sonatas Kavakos an exclusive Decca artist teams up with Yuja Wang, a former Gramophone Young Artist of the
    Year.

    Their partnership at the 2013 Verbier Festival was much talked about (and broadcast on Medici) and they will be touring
    these works in April to major European cities.

    The album is opened by the feisty Scherzo from the F-A-E Sonata, which Brahms contributed to a composite sonata (along
    with his friends Schumann and Dietrich). The three violin sonatas which follow were written for Brahms s muse in all
    matters violin, Joseph Joachim, who also gave the premiere of the Violin Concerto and contributed its cadenzas. The
    album closes with the instantly recognizable Wiegenlied or Lullaby.
