Incandescence refers to the state of being extremely bright after being subjected to extreme heat. Drawing on that, Stéphanie Moraly and Romain David gather on this recording Brahms’s last violin sonata, his most passionate, Respighi and Dohnányi’s sonatas and Szymanowski’s Romance, composed during his youth. These four pieces indeed share the same sense of engagement, ardour, and extreme expressivity, seeking to express human passions at their most profound in the final splendours of postromanticism.
