With inspiration drawn from the great violin masters, Ysaÿe’s Op. 27 has in turn inspired many violinists to transcend technical boundaries and claim their own position among the greats. In a career-defining recording Frederieke delivers a wholly immersive performance full of colour and flair.
Overflowing with poetry and imagination Ysaÿe’s sonatas balance thrilling pyrotechnics with lyrical expression, emotional challenges with ferocious technique. Utilising a broad palette of tones and dynamics Saeijs’ powerful emotional narrative captures the distinct characterisation of each dedicatee: Joseph Szigeti, Jacques Thibaud, Georges Enesco, Fritz Kreisler, Mathieu Crickboom and Manuel Quiroga.
Frederieke performs on her beloved Guarneri violin, which is named after Queen Elisabeth of Belgium ‘Ex Reine Elisabeth’, who herself played the violin and was taught by Ysaÿe.
