World-Premiere Recording for AVIE Records Receives International Acclaim
Philippe Graffin will give the UK premiere of the “Sonate posthume” for solo violin by Eugène Ysaÿe on Sunday, 5 April 2020, at Kings Place in London. Graffin discovered the manuscript of Ysaÿe’s unpublished work in the library of the Brussels Conservatoire, an astounding unearthing that extends the Belgian composer’s canon of his essential six sonatas for solo violin.
