‘Podger is Britain’s finest period violinist’ BBC Music Magazine


Beethoven’s sonatas for violin and piano explore a seemingly inexhaustible range of expression and possibility, every bit as varied as his symphonies and piano works. The urgency and energy of the first sonata mark it out as a young man’s music – but what music!

Using period instruments to recreate the soundworld that Beethoven imagined, Rachel Podger and Christopher Glynn follow this with the propulsive energy of the fourth sonata, where the element of dance reigns supreme.

They end with the grandest and most virtuosic work of all – the awe-inspiring and exhilarating Kreutzer, where the instruments are combined with a level of daring and skill that has made this the most popular of all violin sonatas.
