Works for solo violin by Bartók, Penderecki, Benjamin, Carter & Kurtág

Tamsin Waley-Cohen, a violinist of ‘fearless intensity’ (The Guardian), explores the post-1944 solo repertoire, pushing the instrument to its limits. Bartók’s epic Sonata for solo violin opens the programme which also includes Penderecki’s substantial Cadenza, and miniatures by Elliott Carter, György Kurtág and George Benjamin.
