Description: Zelenski's only surviving sonata, from sometime in the mid-1870s, has some of the freshness of the young Brahms about it, and an unusual form with two sonata-form movements surrounding a rondo Allegretto. The remaining 44 minutes are high-quality salon music which sometimes makes demands rather higher than the amateur violinist might be expected to be able to meet. Essential Duo.
