Sonata for violin and piano
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Poulenc wrote his two string sonatas in wartime. The first, a Sonata for violin and piano, was begun in 1942, completed in 1943 and published in 1944, dedicated to the memory of the Spanish poet Federico Garcia Lorca (1899-1936) – a victim of the Spanish Civil War. It was first played in Paris on 21 June 1943 by the young Ginette Neveu and Poulenc. Between a ‘fiery’ Allegro and a ‘tragic’ Presto of Stravinskian parentage comes an Intermezzo evoking guitar music.
