Piano accompaniment backing tracks
Franck's Violin Sonata, written in 1886, is one of the best-loved and esteemed sonatas for violin and piano ever written. It is also very popular is its transcriptions for other instruments, including cello, flute and viola. The first movement serves as a meditative introduction to the main body of the sonata, which begins in earnest with the turbulent second movement with its particularly virtuosic piano part. The Recitativo third movement is the melodic heart of the sonata, and its impassioned melody also features into the celebrated fourth movement. The thematic canon between violin and piano in this movement helps earn its reputation as a mini masterpiece.
