The idea for the 6 Sonatas for Solo Violin Op.27 came to Eugène Ysaÿe in 1923 after attending a recital by the Hungarian violinist Joseph Szigeti, then aged 30, in which he performed Bach's Partitas and Sonatas. The Ysaÿe cycle was completed in July 1923, and published the following year. Its works draw on Bach's legacy while building a bridge to new forms of composition at the dawn of the twentieth century, in an effort to reflect the technical and stylistic development of the violin over the previous two hundred years. A century later, Hilary Hahn, who is currently one of the most brilliant violinists in the world and whose teacher was himself a pupil of Ysaÿe, has gifted us these Sonatas on an impeccable recording, destined to stay on as a benchmark.A choice was made to emphasise the chromaticism of the dissonances, with particular emphasis on the minor seconds. The wide range of these scores demands a plasticity and a dexterity that Hahn has delivered, the musical flow unfolding in a limpid continuum. Faithful to the composer's spirit, but at the same time imbuing it with her own personality, the violinist models the different sound planes with pianissimos you could mistake for caresses. A jewel of sound, magnified by the impeccable recording by the producers at Deutsche Grammophon © Pierre Lamy/Qobuz
