Onyx Records announced the release of Canadian violinist James Ehnes' new album: "Beethoven: Violin Sonatas Nos. 7 & 10."
"This is the fulfillment of a lifelong dream to record the complete Beethoven Sonatas, and I really enjoy the pairing of the fiery and compact 7th sonata with the dreamier, magical 10th," James told The Violin Channel.
"I hope that listeners will particularly enjoy the care that Andy and I put into the subtleties of the 10th sonata. Some of Andy’s effects with pedaling and fine dynamic shading are absolutely magical! And I hope that listeners that have heard our entire cycle will enjoy following Beethoven’s compositional journey from Op. 12 through Op. 96."
