William Mathias’s eloquent and accessible style comes to the fore in these première recordings of his music for violin and piano. His unpublished Violin Sonata (1952) is a highly original and ambitious work from his student days.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. Sara Trickey, praised by The Strad for her ‘fiery and passionate’ playing, joins Iwan Llewelyn-Jones whose ‘power and clean-cut precision’ has been acclaimed by The Guardian.
