All week on A Little Night Music, Kathleen Kajioka has been taking a look at the life and work of Pablo De Sarasate. Today we celebrate his birthday!
Have you ever noticed how much Spanish flavour there is in the violin show pieces of the 19th century? No? Then you need to have a listen to Pablo de Sarasate, one of the biggest violin soloists in history. Not only did the virtuoso from Pamplona leave behind dozens of wonderful works of his own, he influenced a generation of composers who wrote some of their most famous pieces for him.
