Violin Sonata No.4, Op (Beethoven, Ludwig van) Performers, Wolfgang Schneiderhan, Violin - Wilhelm Kempff, Piano. Publisher Info. Deutsche. The Violin Sonata No. 4 of Ludwig van Beethoven in A minor, his Opus 23, was composed in , published in October that year, and dedicated to Count.
It is called "Children's Day" because it is based principally on the church hymns sung at the children's services. And the slow movement recalls a serious time for children, "Yes, Jesus Loves Me"-except when old Stone Mason Bell and Farmer John would get up and shout or sing-and some of the boys would rush out and throw stones down on the rocks in the river.

There's the quietest, querulous stroking of the string, with judiciously applied expressive vibrato to heighten the emotional weight of a phrase, and the most extrovert virtuosity: They eschew the Amsterdam edition of , which came fully ornamented - an obvious shortcut for 21st century performers who haven't acquired the ability to improvise like this pair.

Everything's come together for this one: From the gentle questioning of the First Sonata's introduction to the insanely entertaining Follia variations at the end, this is a recording that will open ears and minds.
