Violinsonaten 1: 9 Kreutzer, 10 op.96

After three acclaimed CDs with works by Mozart for piano and violin, the well-known young Salzburg violinist Thomas Albertus Irnberger now presents all the violin sonatas by Ludwig van Beethoven. With the internationally renowned Beethoven specialist Michael Korstick on the piano, the first part of this series begins with the Sonata No. 8 in G major op. 30/3, the famous 'Kreutzer' Sonata No. 9 in A major op. 47, once termed unplayable by the dedicatee. By contrast, Beethoven's final Violin Sonata No. 10 in G major op. 96 seems more heartfelt in tone, lives from the dialogue between the parts and was once praised by critics as the 'most poetic and musically most sensitively crafted' of his sonatas. This recording was also made on video and will be released as a DVD.

Thomas Albertus Irnberger, born in Salzburg, began violin lessons at the Mozarteum in Salzburg, moved to Prof. Josef Sabaini in Linz and was taught by Ivry Gitlis in Paris. Further teachers included Mauricio Fuks, Yair Kless, Alberto Lysy, Igor Oistrach, Dmitry Sitkovetsky and Grigory Zhislin. Many awards, performances at international festivals and co-operations and recordings with musicians such as Jörg Demus, Evgueni Sinaiski or Paul Badura-Skoda as well as with the Israel Chamber Orchestra conducted by Roberto Paternostro and the orchestra 'Spirit of Europe' under its principal conductor Martin Sieghart stress the young Salzburger's musical skills.

Michael Korstick
Michael Korstick was born in Cologne. He received his first piano lessons at the age of 9 and later studied with Jürgen Tröster in Cologne and with Hans Leygraf in Hanover. He attended the master class held by Tatjana Nikolaieva in Moscow and completed his studies with Sascha Gorodnitzki at the Juilliard School in 1983. In subsequent years, Korstick has been awarded prizes and honours, including at the Beethoven Competition in Vienna, the Reina Sofia Competition in Madrid, the Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow and the International Music Competition in Montréal. In 1992, he conducted the Chilean premiere of the Piano Concerto by Samuel Barber. Further concerts and tours have taken him to Mexico, Korea, Andalusia and Morocco. On the occasion of the festivities for Claudio Arrau's 100th birthday, he performed a Beethoven cycle in Santiago de Chile in 2003. For his CD recordings, which have received excellent reviews in music magazines and journals, he has been awarded the 'Echo Klassik Prize', the Prize of German Record Critics several times and the MIDEM Classical Award.
