’Gallant’ and ‘sensitive’ by no means implies boring and old-fashioned. Proof of this is given by Franz (František) Benda, the Bohemian Paganini of the 18th Century. Not only was his life extremely colourful and successful, but so were his musical compositions that were primarily for the Violin. They are great examples of his compositional ability and mastery of the Violin. Our highly praised Urtext edition with six selected sonatas from the master’s different creative periods – including four first publications – will provide a rich experience for all those violinists who are prepared to step off the usual beaten track. Your efforts will be rewarded!
