Tasmin Little and Piers Lane open with Frank Bridge’s Violin Sonata, first performed at Wigmore Hall in 1934. They pair the composer’s highly sophisticated work with Szymanowski’s Sonata Op. 9, an early composition touched by the influence of Skryabin.

Their programme’s second half matches Arthur Bliss’s single-movement Sonata with Franck’s evergreen Sonata in A.

        • Violin Sonata
