William Harvey, violin, took great interest in Artur Schnabel as a composer. In 2002, long before the violin solo sonata became available as printed score he contacted the Artur Schnabel heirs and secured the permission to study and perform the piece.
Below are the interview William gave at WFMT followed by the five movements of the sonata performed live at the WFMT studio.
