James Ehnes, violin
Andrew Armstrong, piano



After a rapturous critical reception for their Franck & Strauss Violin Sonatas, [see below] James and Andrew turn their attention to three violin sonatas all composed around the years of World War I. The Sibelius 'Berceuse' also dates from the war years when Finland was isolated from the rest of Europe. Sibelius was short of money and busy writing the 6th and 7th symphonies, and planning his 8th: the six short pieces of Op. 79 were attractive to publishers who were wary of large scale works with little chance of commercial return during the hostilities. Debussy would die in 1918 and had, like Elgar, composed very little during the conflict. 'I want to work,' he wrote to his publisher Durand, 'not so much for myself, as to provide a proof, however small, that thirty million Boches can t destroy French thought'. Elgar told a friend 'I cannot do any real work with the awful shadow hanging over us' he said. Suffering from ill health, Elgar wrote the sonata in Sussex where a copse of gnarled lightning-ravaged trees, near his house on the South Downs, inspired him to embark on three late great chamber works. Respighi s sonata inhabits a heroic late romantic almost Brahmsian world, seemingly unscathed by the devastation of the War to end all wars .

James Ehnes is recognised the world over as one of the great violinists of our time – famed for his brilliant technique and musical intelligence as both soloist and chamber musician. These recordings of the complete Mozart Violin Concertos made over ten years ago for CBC and long out of the catalogue sound as fresh as the day they were made. James directs a hand-picked orchestra of colleagues who are as meticulous and fine musicians as he is. The cadenzas in all the concertos are by Ehnes who studied the composer’s own cadenzas of the contemporaneous piano concertos–especially Nos 8 & 9 K246 and 271.

Image Violin Sonatas Nos. 6 & 9
The duo of old friends James Ehnes and Andrew Armstrong has established itself as one of the most exciting of our times. Their albums of violin sonatas by Franck & Strauss, and Debussy, Elgar & Respighi have been praised by critics worldwide. For their new album, they turn to Beethoven, and two A major sonatas with very different moods. The 9th ‘Kreutzer’ is a huge work, heroic and turbulent in character – a kind of concerto for violin and piano. It is middle period Beethoven at its most dramatic. In contrast, the 6th sonata is a serene, introspective work of great beauty which has tended to be overlooked by its more outward looking siblings. The intimacy of this sonata – especially the slow movement is all the more surprising when the original finale was removed by the composer and became the finale of the ‘Kreutzer’. Beethoven wrote the gentle variations to conclude the 6th sonata.

GRAMOPHONE AWARD WINNER / CONCERTO

'Even before the review was in, a well-meaning soul placed this disc on my desk. This, my benefactor assured me, was not just "another Elgar" for the anniversary - it was something special. So it proves. Ehnes finds glowing tone and inspiration throughout in a beautiful yet penetrating reading. Will it displace my beloved Kennedy (second recording) or Kang? Time will tell.'
(Gramophone)

• Sure to be one of the outstanding recordings for Elgar anniversary year, this quite outstanding Violin Concerto was recorded live in May at two performances given during the Philharmonia Orchestra's Elgar series under the direction of outstanding Elgarian Sir Andrew Davis.

• Andrew Davis has performed the Violin Concerto with many players over the years (though this is his first recording of it) and maintains that Ehnes' is the finest of them - "he actually plays what Elgar wrote - and so musically!" And Classical Source wrote: "inspired a newly refreshed love for a familiar work. His intonation was impeccable, his control of the differing emotional elements was impressive and the end was truly magnificent, a fitting climax to a memorable interpretation." (17 May 2007)

• Ehnes gets better and better. Still only 30 this young Canadian is increasingly being recognised as one of the 4 or 5 most complete violinists on the planet. His previous ONYX release of Barber, Korngold and Walton Violin Concertos (ONYX4016) was universally praised, including Record of the Week in the Daily Telegraph and "an outstanding release in every way" from Edward Greenfield in Gramophone

Young Canadian violinist James Ehnes makes his debut on ONYX with this unique and very generous 79 minute coupling of the mid- 20th century’s three most romantic Violin Concertos.

As one of Hollywood's busiest composers of film scores, Erich Korngold was at the top of his profession. His 1947 Violin Concerto turns inward to the lush melodies and plush orchestrations he knew so well from his work in the studios.
Barber and Waltons' Concertos also date form the 30s and 40s and are two of the most melodic and popular in the repertory.

James Ehnes, violin
Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra / Kirill Karabits

After a series of critically acclaimed recordings on ONYX, most recently of the Mendelssohn (ONYX4060) and the Tchaikovsky concertos (ONYX4076), James Ehnes teams up with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and its charismatic music director, Kirill Karabits, in Violin Concertos by Benjamin Britten and Dmitri Shostakovich.

The Britten an early work, was completed in the September of 1939, just as World War II broke out. Britten had already composed 'Our Hunting Fathers' in 1935 (words by W.H Auden), and this work's ferocious condemnation of political extremism and man's inhumanity can to some extent be detected in the concerto. The barbarity of the Spanish Civil War (the concerto was written for the young Spanish violinist Antonio Brosa), the rise of Hitler's Nazis and the persecution of the Jews appalled Britten. Peace and reconciliation was his credo, as exemplified in the later 'War Requiem'. In the scherzo tuba and piccolos present the listener with an image of the horrifying abyss mankind was lurching towards. The first of Shostakovich's two violin concertos was composed in 1948 for David Oistrakh. It had to wait until 1955 for its premiere due to the ban on 'serious' music by the notorious Zhdanov Conference and Party Decree of 1948. Only 'patriotic' music was allowed. With Stalin's death in 1953 Shostakovich was finally able to exert his artistic freedom. It is a truly symphonic work in scale, grand, dramatic and cast in four movements with a huge cadenza placed before the finale. Only in the finale does the sun burst out in a brilliant helter-skelter coda.

- James Ehnes revisits the most demanding work in the violin repertoire, and delivers an astonishing new interpretation, focusing on the lyrical rather than the pyrotechnics in the Caprices - though there is ample virtuosity on display here! These works have never been exceeded in the challenges they present for the performer, and as such are the ultimate studies for solo violin. Upon hearing Paganini play the Caprices for the first time, Liszt had serious doubts about his own abilities as a composer. In contrast, they inspired Schumann to abandon his chosen career as a writer, and take up composition.

- "A masterclass in how to transform virtuosic acrobatics into sensitive 'scenes' for the violin, each one telling its own little story."Salzburger Nachrichten after Salzburg Festival performance 2009

- Insightful booklet essay by Ehnes on the composer and the music.

- Ehnes has a string of highly acclaimed releases on Onyx, including the Gramophone Award winning Elgar concerto (4025),and the Grammy and Juno Award winning Barber, Korngold and Walton concertos (4016) which Gramophone called 'an outstanding disc in every way'.
