Notes & Reviews:

Ysae early began to compose everything for his instrument, the violin. He composed eight violin concertos alone, child's play that he later destroyed - with the exception of the Concerto No. 8 later revised and orchestrated by his grandson. As for Ysae as a mature composer, really only the six solo sonatas written by him as his musical testament just prior to his death have remained present in the pubic mind and in performance practice. But he composed throughout his life in the circle of Faur, Debussy, Lekeu, and (above all) Chausson. His atmospheric, astonishing impressionistic works for violin and orchestra find their perfect match in Albrecht Laurent Breuninger, the winner of the Prix Ysae.
