If you are familiar with his Op. So, once one accepts that there is little of the Viktoria Postnikova* - Sonatas For Violin And Viola genius of the composer on display here there is much to enjoy in Qiujan - Ritual To The Light the music and the performance. The opening Allegro moderato starts impressively and the recording captures the richness of Hiratsuka's piano and Bednarz's violin very well.
As becomes clear in the later work, Bednarz is not a player to force his instrument to the outer limits of its expressive potential. His tone is attractive and as mentioned before his technique unfussily skilled. There is a brief central passage in the middle movement Andantino tranquillo where, with the use of extended strumming pizzicato chords, Szymanowski looks forward to the later violin works including his best-known chamber piece for violin, the Mythes.
Out of curiosity, I jumped across to the two violin concertos to compare how he treated the violin in the later works. The Second Concerto is an acknowledged masterpiece and the gulf is wide but that should not deter the listener from enjoying the earlier work on its own terms. If the Viktoria Postnikova* - Sonatas For Violin And Viola is early and displays few of its composer's characteristic musical fingerprints, the Shostakovich is late and displays them all.
The very opening is sparse elusive, almost mindlessly meandering but laden with an Viktoria Postnikova* - Sonatas For Violin And Viola potential that epitomises his extraordinary late compositions. The Op. The date of its composition - August - is the same month as the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia. I am uneasy at leaping on the Shostakovich-as-political-conscience bandwagon but it is impossible to deny that even in this group of late masterpieces this work is particularly bleak and oppressive.
Fine though Bednarz's playing is - he negotiates the skittering passage work of the central Allegretto with insouciant ease. I do feel he pulls away from the brutal near ugly essence of the music and ultimately Moderato - Dmitri Shostakovich suffers.
To my ear, while they match Bednarz and Hiratsuka note for note in terms of technical address they leave them far behind in their grasp of the work's emotional landscape. The opening movement is one of those typical late-Shostakovich Shlomo Mintz which seem initially to wander aimlessly before imperceptibly building to music brimming with grief and rage. The skill is in the Float Away - Kottonmouth Kings - Rollin Stoned slowly drawing the listener forward - gradation and musical line is all.
Mintz and Postnikova are masterly here; the new performance far less so. The central Allegretto Link (22) - Chapter 2 Düster quite Viktoria Postnikova* - Sonatas For Violin And Viola Shostakovich delighted in using such a diminutive term with its implications of something light and airy for such brutal unforgiving music eludes me - is disturbingly ferocious.

Oistrakh characterised the first movement Nocturne as "a suppression of feelings", and the second movement Scherzo as "demoniac".
