Nilolaj Znaider Performs Four Great Violin Sonatas at the Wigmore Hall

One of the world’s greatest violinists, Nikolaj Znaider will perform four sonatas with pianist Robert Kulek at the Wigmore Hall on Wednesday 3 March. Two Viennese classics, Beethoven’s E-flat sonata from opus 12 and Schubert’s D minor Sonatina are played alongside Franck’s Sonata from 1886 and Poulenc’s Sonata, written during the Second World War and dedicated to the memory of Spanish poet Federico García Lorca.

Znaider’s recent recording of the Elgar Violin Concerto, with the Dresden Staatskapelle conducted by Sir Colin Davis, has been received to outstanding critical acclaim. In 2009 he was named the world’s top violinist by Classic FM Magazine.
