Notes and Editorial Reviews

The three fine, substantial 20th c. works, and the brief 21st c. piece reflective of the program’s mission, all composed for violin and piano duo, offers an instrument-specific look into the musical world of the 1920s. With the exception of Jacques-Alphonse De Zeegant (b. 1955), all the composers represented here – Bloch, Ravel and Enescu – were born during the final third of the 19th c. The idea behind the selections on this new Ars Produktion recording presented by Stefan Tarara and Lora Vakova-Tarara is to make audible a cross-section of the many tone colors, contrasts and emotions of the era.
