Notes and Editorial Reviews

This double album offers a portrait of the violinist Amandine Beyer drawn from the recordings she has made for ZZT. The first CD selects highlights from her chamber repertoire, including works by Jean-Féry Rebel, Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, Nicola Matteis, and Robert de Visée. The second is devoted to the concerto, with compositions by Johann Sebastian Bach, Antonio Vivaldi, and Arcangelo Corelli. This programme is an ideal introduction to the multiple facets of Amandine Beyer's talent and to the grace and joie de vivre of her music-making. It also provides an opportunity to discover one of Corelli's Concerti Grossi op.6, a preview of the complete set to be released on ZZT in the autumn of 2013.
