Reviews

'Even the most demanding of Ysaye's flights of fancy sound beautiful, with the accurate tuning complemented by fine tone, thrillingly precise fingerwork, plus excellent recording' (Gramophone)

'Graffin's unfailing intonation places this disc at the top of the available versions' (The Strad)

'Obviously and enthusiastically recommended' (Fanfare, USA)

'Excellent enregistrement, transparent, précis, avec une excellente restitution des timbres. Définition parfaite' (Diapason, France)
The sixth sonata was written for Manuel Quiroga, a Spanish virtuoso whose career was interrupted abruptly by an accident. The work brings to mind the music of Sarasate. This Spanish caprice brilliantly ends the cycle, like a final act of bravado.

La dernière sonate est écrite pour Manuel Quiroga, virtuose espagnol dont la carrière fut interrompue brusquement à la suite d’un accident. L’œuvre n’est pas sans rappeler les pièces de Sarasate; ce caprice espagnol cloture brillament ce cycle, comme une ultime bravade.

Die letzte Sonate wurde für Manuel Quiroga geschrieben, ein spanischer Virtuose deren Karriere sehr plötzlich durch einen Unfall beendet wurde. Das Werk erinnert an die Stücke von Sarasate; dieses spanische „Capricio“ beendet glanzvoll diesen Zyklus, wie eine letzte Herausforderung.
