Richard Strauss’s sumptuously romantic early Violin Sonata displays all the hallmarks of his mature style. The Franck Sonata is the product of a composer at the height of his powers, and is one of the greatest violin sonatas ever composed. James Ehnes and Andrew Armstrong couple the sonatas with three Strauss songs arranged for violin and piano, and a rare work from the very end of Strauss’s long career, the delightful Allegretto.
