Format: Audio CD
Despite the name, this CD actually contains only one of P-B's three violin sonatas, his E minor Op. 1. It's 30 minutes and four movements of romantic-classical pleasantness, generally reminding me of minor Brahms. The young composer doesn't yet sound distinctively like himself, as becomes abundantly clear when, in contrast, we move on to four pieces in the Op 15 Svit ("Suite"). No-one who hears this transition will be in any doubt that in the latter pieces there is something very distinct that we must call Peterson-Bergerian (!), though it remains elusive to pin down. Popular, folky, slightly sentimental, concise, conservative, miniaturist, yet with unusual textures and melodic lines ; - these are footnotes that don't quite get to the heart of it. Why would so fervent a Wagnerian seem so lacking in personal passion and grandeur, so devoted to dispersing his inspiration into faint musical tourist-brochures? Those were the questions that were asked, often spitefully, by colleagues he had injured in his reviews. It would be nice to see some of P-B's voluminous criticism translated into English, it might shed more light on this mystery. In the mean time, I'm delighted to add this to my P-B collection, and to play it occasionally, always delighted by the freshness and always hastily putting it aside for fear that something so slight is bound to go stale on me.
