Franck – Violin Sonata – Renaud Capuçon, Martha Argerich

The Sonata in A Major for Violin and Piano by César Franck is one of his best-known compositions, and is considered one of the finest sonatas for violin and piano ever written. It is an amalgam of his rich native harmonic language with the Classical traditions he valued highly, held together in a cyclic framework.
