Ludwig van BeethovenViolin Sonata in E-flat Major, Op. 12 No. 3
Our multi-summer survey of Beethoven’s sonatas for violin and piano—equal partners all the way—continues with two of his earliest mature chamber works, from the late 1790s, and the second of his lovely, lyrical romances. Tucson Symphony Orchestra associate concertmaster Michelle Abraham teams up with Oberlin professor Peter Takács, who has recordings of all Beethoven’s solo piano sonatas under his belt.
