String Quartet No. 1 (Inspired by Leo Tolstoy's Kreutzer Sonata)
In October 1923 the Czech Quartet invited Leos Janacek to "compose something for them". This provided the stimulus for his first string quartet. The work was inspired by Tolstoy's "Kreutzer Sonata" (which he had written influenced by Beethoven's famous violin sonata).
Janacek had also read Tolstoy's story earlier in the original Russian and already at that time it had inspired him to compose a piano trio in 1907 which was later lost.
Janacek's string quartet is a masterwork by the almost 70-year-old composer. The work sparked a creative impulse which continued with the composition of the second string quartet "Intimate Letters" in the last years of the composer's life.

Title: Come Thou Fount: Eight American Hymns and Spirituals, Published by Latham Music
Beethoven's famous concerto for violin and orchestra has appeared in many editions over the last 150 years, but none has truly done justice to the work until now. The acclaimed Beethoven scholar, Jonathan Del Mar, presents a groundbreaking scholarly-critical edition of this esteemed work. Working from all known sources, Del Mar presents Beethoven's intended solo violin articulation, dynamics and slurring, as well as note corrections to the solo violin and orchestral material. This edition includes an Urtext Solo part and a Solo part with bowings and fingerings by Detlef Hahn. The piano reduction is based on the Urtext by Martin Schelhaas.
