Sonata for solo violin No 2 in A minor, Op 27 No 2

à Jacques Thibaud

Based on the Gregorian ‘Dies irae’, the second sonata is dedicated to Jacques Thibaud, who was a student and protégé of Ysaÿe. The two first movements were inspired by Bach’s third partita in E major and one could link this sonata with the principle of ‘collages’ that the cubist painters started using some fifteen years earlier.

from notes by Philippe Graffin © 1997

Toute entière basée sur le «Dies irae» grégorien, la deuxième sonate est dediée à Jacques Thibaud, qui fut élève et protégé d’Ysaÿe. Les deux premiers mouvements sont inspirés de la troisième partita en mi majeur, et on peut faire un rapprochement dans cette sonate avec le principe des collages des peintres cubistes commencé quinze ans plus tôt environ.

extrait des notes rédigées par Philippe Graffin © 1997

Die zweite Sonate, ganz auf den gregorianischen „Dies irae“ aufgebaut, ist Jacques Thibaud gewidmet, der Ysaÿe’s Schüler und Schützling war. Die ersten beiden Sätze sind inspiriert von der dritten Partita in E-Dur, und man kann in dieser Sonate das Konzept der kubistischen Kollagen erkennen, eine Richtung die damals seit ungefähr 15 Jahren die Malerei kennzeichnete.
