Debussy had intended to write a cycle comprising six sonatas. However; as he was seriously ill; he was forced to conclude it with the third one. Whereas the Sonata for Cello and Piano and the one for Flute; Viola and Harp were quickly written in 1915; an unusually fruitful compositional year; the violin sonata posed difficulties for the composer in the following year. He struggled with the finale in particular; and was only able to send the work to the publisher Durand in April 1917. Its difficult genesis is soon forgotten when one listens to the resulting work: it displays perfect classicism and is full of life; as the composer himself remarked.
