Yehudi Menuhin and Viktoria Postnikova in Leningrad

Yehudi Menuhin (violin) Viktoria Postnikova (piano)

Violinist Yehudi Menuhin and Viktoria Postnikova have performed together on numerous occasions throughout the course of their careers.
In this 1987 recording from Leningrad, they showcase sonatas for piano and violin by Brahms, Bartók and Beethoven.
Recorded only years before the Berlin Wall came down and a major shift ran through the political landscape of Europe, this recording is a unique peak into musical life in former Soviet Russia.

Brahms: Sonata in A Major Op. 100; Bartók: Sonata No. 1; Beethoven: Sonata No. 7 in C Minor Op. 30,2
