Ancalagon Records has this month announced the release of violinist Lara St John and pianist Matt Herskowitz‘s new album: ‘The Key of A‘.
The disc features Beethoven’s Violin Sonata No. 9 ‘Kreutzer’ in A Major, Franck’s Sonata in A Major for Violin and Piano – and Fritz Kreisler’s ‘Schön Rosmarin‘.
”Both of these sonatas are written for violinists by keyboard players and I paired them in an album because they are both, arguably, the zenith of works for violin and piano … (also, they’re both in A, thus the title) …” Lara has this week told The Violin Channel.
”We hope they’ll enjoy the ride … Matt and I are both musical extremists, and I wish for listeners to get as carried away in the flow and the fury and the power of these pieces as we do!” she has said.
