Violin Sonata ('Die Reisesonate') by Hanns Eisler (1898-1962). For Violin, Piano. Modern. Sheet Music. Published by Edition Peters (PE.P05253).
[This sonata] presents considerable technical, rhythmic and stylistic challenges. The violin part, which includes several cadenzas, is extremely difficult. However, since it is relatively short and texturally very transparent, it might serve as an interesting introduction to the dissonant intervals and harmonies of atonality. Players familiar with the style will enjoy the sonata's conversational aspect, its witty rhythms and contrasts of character. '--Edith Eisler, for Strings magazine (April 2008).
