Malwina Sosnowski


»Malwina Sosnowski’s playing is vivid and focused. She understands how to tell stories with her Violin, whilst keeping a very personal sound, a splendid technique as a soloist and chamber musician likewise.«
Frank Reinecke, Vogler Quartett Berlin,
Professor for Chamber music at the HMT Leipzig (2013

{ „SAKURA: SPRING!“ – CHERRY BLOSSOM AND SPRING SONATA}

Spring electrifies us, it awakens our senses, makes us euphoric – especially in March, when we feel like we can’t stand one more cold, wet day. No wonder people long for spring every year. In fact, it happens all over the world. Japanese cherry blossom (jap. 桜 sakura) is one of the most important symbols of Japanese culture. The blossoming of cherry trees is a highlight in the Japanese calendar and marks the beginning of spring.

The rapturous gestures and blossoming melodies of Ludwig van Beethoven’s Spring Sonata are paired with Japanese and French repertoire. But their musical vision goes far beyond sunshine and pink cherry blossoms, with Benyamin Nuss‘ Elegy for Fukushima and Masashi Hamauzu’s Four pieces for violin and piano around Sakura making political statements. Both pieces reference Japan and are juxtaposed with works by French composers Lili Boulanger and Germaine Tailleferre. (From the booklet. Texts: Judith Schorr)

Elegy for Fukushima, Genuin classics and SWR2, 2021. Video by Daniel von Rüdiger. Malwina Sosnowski, violin – Benyamin Nuss, piano
