NPR on What Makes Beethoven’s Kreutzer So Great
Listen to Rob Kapilow and Fred Child (the host of Performance Today) talking about the opening of Beethoven’s violin sonata No. 9 (“Kreutzer”) and how that shows Beethoven’s genius in binding violin and piano together. In that NPR’s story, you can also hear the first movement played by Anne-Sophie Mutter (violin) and Orkis (piano).
Below is a youtube clip played by Kogan. (Some commenter said the pianist is Emils Gilels, but I’m not sure.)
My collection has one by Itzhak Perlman and Valdmir Ashkenazy, and the other by Gidon Kremer and Martha Argerich.
