Episode 15: Jack Liebeck on Ysaÿe Sonatas

October 7, 2021

Violinist Jack Liebeck took on a monumental lockdown project – while others were making sourdough or learning new languages, he decided to record all six solo violin sonatas by Ysaÿe. He speaks about his journey to complete this project, the idiomatic nature of Ysaÿe's writing, and which solo sonata he connected to the most.

Jack's new recording is released on 8 October 2021 on Orchid Classics.
