If Bach’s solo violin sonatas are the Old Testament for violinists, Ysa˙e’s six works are certainly the New Testament. And Yvonne Smeulers, one of the Netherlands’ leading violinists, is meant to be their prophet. In the bonus video included with the CD, she speaks about Ysa˙e and her relationship with the pieces, leaving the listener with no doubt as to why she can interpret this exciting and multilayered music, touching the frontiers of modernity, with such naturalness and passion. A fascinating sound document featuring some of the repertoire’s greatest gems!
