First came Johann Sebastian Bach's sonatas and partitas, then Nicola Paganini's caprices. Now, with the op. 27 sonatas of Eugene Ysaye, the key works in the repertoire for unaccompanied violin are available in urtext editions from Henle. Ysaye peppered these challenging works with extraordinary difficulties, dedicating each of them to a virtuoso violinist of his day and tailoring it to suit his special capabilities. Thanks to newly discovered source material, we are able to present a “definitive text” that in many respects supersedes the previously available text from the first edition.

  • March 01, 2014 Excellent Edition

    This is an excellent edition of Ysaye's wonderful solo sonatas. Not only is this edition essentially free of errors (which cannot be said of the Durand edition), but it is beautifully laid out with fold outs that make page turns during a movement unnecessary. If you're ready to...

    take on the challenge of these sonatas, this is the edition to get!

  • August 09, 2009 Difficult, but rewarding.

    The difficulty is high, but the reward lies in the achievements and the beauty of the music. Begin with the second sonata. Don't even open to the first. If you are an amateur violinist, chances are, when you open the book, your first thought is to close it immediately...

    . In spite of its difficulty, much of the music is very melodious and beautiful. My favorites are the 2nd and 5th sonatas. The 2nd, subtitled Obsession, is the most approachable, as the first movement is in Bach's style, and lacks double stops. The difficulty increases, but by the time the fourth movement is reached, there is an understanding of Ysaye's style, which increases the enjoyment of the work. (review continues.)
