This new release showcases Eugene Ysaye’s Six soantes pour violon seul, op. 27. An exuberant product of the Roaring Twenties, they are played on the 1735 Ex-David/Midori Guarneri del Gesu violin, a superb instrument that I wish I owned. The sonatas are joined, in a time-travelling leap forward to the hypermodern era, by V. E. Kauzner’s own composition, the Sojuchameleon for violin and field recordings. It was recorded in the zen-like atmosphere of a monastery, and complements of the release’s title, which campaigns for the introduction of a noise tax in urban areas. Kauzner first heard the Sonata No. 3 “Ballade” from the Six sonates op. 27 in 1999, and was enchanted by its sonorous beauty. To him, it sounded like the wind. After years of performing all six sonatas, he decided to record them. However, he came up with very little information about Ysaye’s life. Only one book was ever written about him, but Carl Flesch described him as the “violin incubator of Europe,” and “the most outstanding and individual violinist I have ever heard in my life.”
