Debussy takes flight for the last time, Grieg spices his sonata with Norwegian flavors, and Chausson creates a miniature concerto. Debussy was terminally ill when he composed his Violin Sonata, but the music’s verve and light speak of happier times. The light in Grieg’s Violin Sonata No. 2 is derived from Norwegian folk music and dance that animate its opening and closing movements. In Chausson’s rarely performed masterpiece, passages for solo violin and piano alternate and combine with the string quartet, themes cycle from movement to movement, and melodies soar.
