Although written for George Bridgetower, the exceptionally gifted Polish-born son of a West Indian father, Beethoven dedicated his Op. 47 to the French composer and violinist Rudolphe Kreutzer following what Bridgetower recalled as ‘a silly quarrel about a girl’.

Chloë Hanslip and Danny Driver preface the ‘Kreutzer’ Sonata’s virtuoso fire and dramatic momentum with Schubert’s tuneful Sonatina.

  • Franz Schubert (1797-1828)
