British Violin Sonatas

The story of British music for violin and piano is a fascinating one, but by no means as fully appreciated as it might be. It forms part of the broader genre of British chamber music, overshadowed by the breadth of orchestral, choral, and solo vocal music. Violinist Clare Howick and pianist Simon Callaghan pay tribute to the remarkable flourishing of British violin sonatas in the 20th century with a collection of music by six key figures of the modern chamber music renaissance in Britain.
