Description: Of the 81 minutes on this disc, 59 are devoted to the four early (all from 1927) works for solo violin which were probably influenced by the sonatas for solo instruments by Hindemith. Baroque forms are viewed here through the medium of 1920s neo-classicism while the tempo directions ("Ruhig viertel, sehr flie├čend" or "Jazz tempo: Sehr robust") again call to mind Hindemith's practice, but these are remarkably original works for a 22-year-old. Alina Ibragimova (violin), Britten Sinfonia.
