Isabelle Faust, violin and Alexander Melnikov, piano

Among the most sought-after violinists in the world, Isabelle Faust’s penetrating musical interpretations are no less than hypnotic. Ever keen to delve into new musical horizons, her repertoire ranges from J.S. Bach to contemporary composers. BBC Music Award-winning Alexander Melnikov appears with major orchestras and prominent period ensembles worldwide.

The touchstone Faust/Melnikov recording of Beethoven’s Sonatas for Violin and Piano—three of which will be heard on this program—won a Gramophone Award and a Grammy nomination.


Sonata in A minor, Op. 23
Sonata in F Major, Op. 24, “Spring”
