Quick Overview

Franz Liszt’s Sonata in B minor, a masterpiece of piano literature, is offered here in a challenging version for solo violin. Attempting to liberate the solo-violin medium, this transcription of a large-scale sonata in one movement exploits numerous instrumental possibilities in order to create a distinctive sound world, including: melodic independence of the four strings, wide-range polyphony, unusual use of harmonics and a fugue in pizzicato. Sivan’s transcription of this piece is a valuable addition of a substantial nineteenth-century Romantic work to the solo violin repertoire.
