Jump to navigation Jump to search The Sonata in A major for Violin and Piano by César Franck is one of his best-known compositions, and is considered one of the finest sonatas for violin and piano ever written. The Violin Sonata in A was quintet A-Dur PDF in 1886, when César Franck was 63, as a wedding present for the 31-year-old violinist Eugène Ysaÿe. Franck was not present when Ysaÿe married, but on the morning of the wedding, on 26 September 1886 in Arlon, their mutual friend Charles Bordes presented the work as Franck’s gift to Ysaÿe and his bride Louise Bourdeau de Courtrai.

The Sonata in A regularly appears on concert programs and on recordings, and is in the core repertoire of all major violinists. Jascha Heifetz played it at his final recital in 1972. The piece is further notable for the difficulty of its piano part, when compared with most of the chamber repertoire. The work is cyclic in nature, all the movements sharing common thematic threads. Themes from one movement reappear in subsequent movements, but usually transformed. Franck had adapted this technique from Franz Liszt—his friend, and Cosima von Bülow’s father.
The movements alternate between slow and fast. 8 This gentle and sweetly reflective rocking theme, introduced by the violin after a short introduction by the piano, is the thematic core of the entire work. Franck originally intended it as a slow movement, but Ysaÿe preferred a slightly quicker tempo, and convinced Franck to mark it Allegretto. Allegro This turbulent movement is sometimes considered the real opening movement, with the Allegretto ben moderato serving as a long introduction.
Ben moderato: Recitativo-Fantasia This is improvisatory in nature, and free in both structure and expression. Allegretto poco mosso The main melody is heard in canonic imitation between the instruments, and recurs in a rondo-like manner to a triumphant and soaring conclusion. James Harding described the movement as „a magnificent example of canonic writing, simple, majestic and irresistible in its ample, beautifully wrought proportions“. The setting for cello and piano was the only alternative version sanctioned by Franck. This was created by the renowned cellist Jules Delsart.
The flute and piano version has been recorded by James Galway and Martha Argerich, as well as by Sharon Bezaly and Vladimir Ashkenazy.

Cesar Franck Sonata in A major, Edition for Violoncello, Urtext Edition“. 1821 Drawing of Franz Schubert by Josef Kupelwieser. Piano Quintet in A major, D. Rather than the usual piano quintet lineup of piano and string quartet, the Trout Quintet is written for piano, violin, viola, cello and double bass. 4 s s2 s1 s2 s s s e,1 e2. The first movement is in sonata form. The recapitulation begins in the subdominant, making any modulatory changes in the transition to the second theme unnecessary, a frequent phenomenon in early sonata form movements written by Schubert.
This movement is composed of two symmetrical sections, the second being a transposed version of the first, except for some differences of modulation which allow the movement to end in the same key in which it began. A theme and variations on Schubert’s Lied „Die Forelle“. A similar process is heard in three of Schubert’s later compositions: the Octet in F major, D. Piano Sonata in A minor, D. The concluding variation is similar to the original Lied, sharing the same characteristic accompaniment in the piano. The Finale is in two symmetrical sections, like the second movement. Although this movement lacks the chromaticism of the second movement, its own harmonic design is also innovative: the first section ends in D major, the subdominant.
