Description: The huge, four-movement, 43-minute sonata from 1843 is otherwise not available on disc. Undeservedly neglected, it has a scherzo which is a fine example of the unpretentious charm and grace which Vieuxtemps cultivated in his music, while the following Largo opens out from its hymn-like theme towards a climax of quasi-religious intensity and radiance. There is a notable absence of conventionally violinistic fireworks to the finale, the watchwords being charm and unpretentiousness. Carmelo Andriani (violin), Pierluigi Camicia (piano).
