Description: Straesser was even ahead of his model Brahms in his great melodic inventiveness, which is particularly evident in his works for violin and piano. The Arioso already bears the melodic element in its title, and the other character pieces, here entitled Drei Reigen (Three Tales), also offer a particularly rewarding task for the violin. In general, it is the tender, sometimes even sentimental mood that is so enchanting about Straesser's music, along with the very broadly sweeping melodic arcs and it leads to fairytale-like episodes in the almost symphonic dimensions of the 30-minute sonata. Gudrun Höbold (violin), Eri Uchino (piano).
