"Since its ascendancy over the cornetto, the gamba, and other treble instruments in the mid-seventeenth century, the violin has been at the center of fine-art musicmaking in Western civilzation. As a solo instrument, as a leading component in chamber ensembles, and as the mainstay of the orchestra, the violin has been among the instruments most preferred by composers for the past four-hundred years. Consequently, the literature for the violin must be closely associated with the evolution of fine-art music in general. In many instances, it has been at the heart of this evolution. The violin sonatas by Handel, Beethoven, and Faure on tonight's program are indeed fully representative of advanced musical thinking in their respective times."--Program notes.
