A recital of three very different sonatas for violin and piano, given by Radio 3 New Generation Artist Tai Murray. She is joined by pianist Gilles Vonsattel, a fellow student from the Juilliard School of Music in her native New York. Their programme includes Respighi's 'edition' of a sonata by Vivaldi and Mozart's elegant 'little A Major' work. Between them comes music by Romanian-born George Enescu, a fine violinist as well as a composer and conductor. His 3rd Sonata recalls his native folk-music, quarter-tones and all.
