Beethoven – Kreutzer Sonata – Kremer, Violin; Argerich, Piano

The Kreutzer Sonata for violin and piano, No. 9, by Ludwig van Beethoven, is notable for its technical difficulty and unusual length (around 40 minutes) and emotional scope. It is commonly known as the Kreutzer Sonata after the violinist Rodolphe Kreutzer, who it was ultimately dedicated to, but who thoroughly disliked the piece and refused to play it. – Martha Argerich
