Cesar Franck's Sonata for Piano and Violin is one of the most treasured works in the violin repertoire, a masterpiece of cyclic form with a gracefulness and expressive force almost paradigmatic for the age of musical Romanticism. This work was composed in 1886 and was dedicated to the Belgian violinist and composer Eugene Ysaye.

Barenreiter's new edition also includes two short separate movements for the same instrumentation: the early Andantino quietoso op. 6 (1843), a hauntingly beautiful piece composed for performances with Franck's violinist brother Joseph, as well as Melancolie, first published after Franck's death in 1911. This second piece is based on a solfege exercise and written at the height of the composer's creative powers, at about the same time as his famous violin sonata.
