Vengerov plays the Brahms Violin Sonatas

Maxim Vengerov performs all three of Brahms’s Violin Sonatas: a great artist encounters music that’s better than it can ever be played.

Vengerov’s insight and beauty of tone equip him for any artistic challenge that a violinist can face. So to hear him in Brahms’s three violin sonatas – by turns tender, tormented and ardently romantic – will be fascinating.

Because this is music that demands far more than mere surface beauty. For all their formal perfection, these three sonatas embody the intimate secrets of a troubled soul. Vengerov is ideally placed to probe far beneath the surface of this glorious music; anyone who loves the violin will want to hear what he discovers.
