Violin Sonata No. 1, Op. 15

Violin Sonata No. 2, Op. 94

Violin Sonata (1952)

Sara Trickey (violin) & Iwan Llewelyn-Jones (piano)

Welsh composer William Mathias' (1934-92) eloquent and accessible style comes to the fore in these premiere recordings of his music for violin and piano, recorded for Naxos in 2011.

His unpublished Violin Sonata (1952) is a highly original and ambitious work from his student days. The First Violin Sonata is a model of clarity and concision, while the Second Violin Sonata, commissioned to celebrate the composer's 50th birthday, is cast in four vividly contrasted – and virtuosic – movements.
