Cesar Franck's Sonata for piano and violin is one of the highly esteemed works of the violin literature, a masterpiece cyclic form - with their grace and expressiveness it is paradigmatic of the era of musical romanticism. The sonata was composed in 1886 and is dedicated to the Belgian violinist and composer Eugene Ysaye.
Based on the composer's correspondence, it can be clearly demonstrated that Eranck was directly involved in the printing of his work. The critical, practical new edition is essentially based on the first edition of the separate violin part and the piano part of the first edition of the version for violoncello and piano that was published during Franck's lifetime: this corrected numerous misprints still existing in the first edition of the violin version. In addition to the sources mentioned, the two autograph manuscripts of the violin sonata were used when individual readings had to be clarified.
A complete list of sources, notes on the edition and a critical report complete the edition.
