From Norway to France with Duo Equilibrium

Come and experience the most beautiful romantic journey with Duo Equilibrium, where we begin our travels in Norway with Grieg’s third sonata. This was Grieg’s most popular violin sonata and remained his personal favorite. We then move on to France, where you will be introduced to the Franck sonata, which was a wedding present from the composer to his good friend, Eugene Ysaye, who was a famous virtuoso violinist at the time. Although Ysaye only received the sonata on the morning of his wedding, he still managed to perform it at the ceremony later that same day. A very interesting fact is that both of these sonatas were composed in 1886, which, coincidentally, happens to be the same year in which Johannesburg was founded!
