Ysaye Eugene – Sonata Op.28 (for cello)
Eugène Ysaÿe (16 July 1858 – 12 May 1931) is a Belgian violinist, composer and conductor. He was regarded as “The King of the Violin”.
As a performer, Ysaÿe was compelling and highly original. Pablo Casals claimed never to have heard a violinist play in tune before Ysaÿe, and Carl Flesch called him “the most outstanding and individual violinist I have ever heard in my life.”
Ysaÿe was also a friend of Claude Debussy and would sometimes correspond with him by letter. The two had great respect for each other and Ysaÿe was a significant supporter of the younger composer’s early career. Debussy dedicated his only string quartet to the violinist, who studied the score with great care.
