The famous, wonderful first of Schumann's three late violin sonatas, that in A minor op. 105, was written in just a few days in September 1851. In regard to publication of the present edition, violinist Florian Sonnleitner remarked that he loved to play this one so much because “very compact in form, and in the merciless key of A minor, it is one of the most direct mirrors of Schumann's inner life.” The Henle Urtext edition is based on the autograph and on Schumann's working copy of the first printing.

    This is a fine work from Schumann's later opus. The first movement is very beautifully worked. However, the last movement demands an extremely finely polished technique. Here even Clara, Schumann's famous pianist wife, didn't produce the effect he was hoping for! It is certainly easy to produce...

    a messy sound if the tempo is too fast.
