Glossa Records has announced the release of Swiss violinist Leila Schayegh‘s new album: ‘Johannes Brahms Violin Sonatas‘.

Recorded with pianist Jan Schultsz, the disc features Brahms’ Violin Sonata No. 1 in G Major, Violin Sonata No. 2 in A Major, Violin Sonata No. 3 in D minor – and F-A-E Violin Sonata in C Minor.

”In my deep heart, I have always been a very romantic soul … and after years of concentration on earlier repertoire I really felt the urge to go on and explore new things … ” Leila has told The Violin Channel.

“My goal was to try and discover Brahms in a completely new light and to get a little out of the comfort zone … I wanted to really try to capture the atmosphere of life, emotions and musical understanding …” she has said.

“I hope listeners will get transported to another time … but in the end it’s not important what we did and why … but to just listen and let it sink in.”
