Notes and Editorial Reviews

Hagai Shaham and Arnon Erez continue their exploration of the early twentieth-century violin repertoire, turning this time to Italy. These musicians are noted for their full-blooded performances: here they revel exuberantly in the music’s operatic passion.

"Castelnuovo-Tedesco's 'Sonata quasi una fantasia' is an eclectic, sexy mix of impressionism and jazz. The Pizzetti demands something other than beauty in performance, and Shaham and Erez are uncompromising and abrasive with it."

-- Tim Ashley, The Guardian [5/2014]
