Louis Spohr: Sonata in G for violin and harp, Op.115: I.Allegro
German violinist Louis Spohr was busy composing, conducting and inventing—but was he too busy for love? Not on your life! He married harpist Dorette Schiedler on the promise that they’d play violin and harp duets together forevermore. It’s because of this promise that he composed gobs of duets for these two instruments, which happen to go great together when the violin is tuned a half step below its default key.
