Notes & Reviews:

For a long time the fame of Eugène Ysaÿe as a composer was overshadowed by his fame as a performing musician: he was the most renowned violin virtuoso of his generation. In the 1890s, when he was a young man in his thirties, he was pivotal in advocating contemporary French and Belgian music. In 1923, he wrote his legendary Six Sonatas for Solo Violin, a musical heritage for the generations to come: they are the violinists' equivalent to the Six Cello Suites by Bach. Ysaÿe's work is not always easy to track down. Many compositions only exist in manuscript form, or were not published until years later, sometimes in adapted versions. His son Antoine Ysaÿe, and later his grandson Jacques Ysaÿe, took care of the musical heritage and publications. Today the collection is located in the Royal Library of Brussels. This CD presents some premieres from this collection.
