Sonata for solo violin No 6 in E major, Op 27 No 6

à Manuel Quiroga

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.

from notes by Philippe Graffin © 1997

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.

extrait des notes rédigées par Philippe Graffin © 1997

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.
