Last week has seen another fascinating Medtner event in my university’s chamber hall, confronting the Russian composer’s 1st violin sonata, Op. 21, and Sonata-Ballade, Op. 27, with Beethoven’s Sonata quasi una fantasia, Op. 27 No. 1. Many thanks, Sasha Karpeyev and Viktoria Kaunzner, for your excellent playing!
