Produktbeskrivelse

The works on this CD feature the Scandinavian influences that the Swedish
violinist and the Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg exerted on Julius
Röntgen’s music for violin and piano. Amanda Maier was Röntgen’s great love
and his first wife, and Grieg was his best friend. Significantly, Edvard
Grieg is represented in the first work on this CD in the form of the sonata
that Röntgen composed »In Memory of Edvard Grieg.« However, precisely this
work is the only one on the present program that was not published during
Röntgen’s lifetime. His Swedish Melodies and Dances may initially seem
unassuming, but they display the highest virtuosity. They require great
technical mastery from the instrumentalists with their third, sixth, and
octave intervals, swift passages in the highest register, and leaps
extending over several octaves. Even though the Norwegian Variations last a
mere seven minutes and thus are not very lengthily dimensioned, they number
among Röntgen’s best variation works. The exposition of the theme in D
major is followed by eight variations in which the piano and the violin
take turns in the lead role.
