Légende, Op 17

composer

 
In the years following 1852 Wieniawski undertook a period of extensive touring in Europe, culminating in a series of concerts in London where, in addition to playing chamber music with the Beethoven Quartet Society alongside Joseph Joachim (who considered Wieniawski ‘the craziest risk-taking virtuoso I’ve ever heard’), he met his future wife Isabella Hampton. To her he dedicated Légende, Op 17, confessing he loved her ‘more deeply than the finest Stradivarius or Guarneri’. Written in 1860, this billet-doux unfolds in poetic fashion, bearing its romantic vein and salon-like composure with consummate ease.
