Schubert: Three Sonatas for Piano and Violin, Op. 137

Renowned pianist Peter Takács and Icelandic violinist Sibbi Bernhardsson present Schubert: Three Sonatas for Piano and Violin, Op. 137, their first record in collaboration with one another and their first record on Leaf Music. Largely unknown at the time of Schubert’s death, the Sonatas for Violin and Piano (Op. posth. 137) were composed during a prolific two-month span in March–April of 1816. In addition to completing his Fourth Symphony (“Tragic”) during this creative outpouring, the nineteen-year-old penned some two dozen songs and a twelve-movement Stabat Mater (D. 383) for choir and orchestra. Schubert himself was a capable violinist (and violist) and had already written a significant body of work for strings, but this was his first foray into the violin sonata proper.
