Notes and Editorial Reviews

Montreal violinist Alexandre Da Costa offers us his 4th album. After the success of his previous recording of Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto, España presents a musical portrait of the musician, closer to his personal roots. The exciting duo composed of Alexandre Da Costa and spanish pianist Juan Carlos Garvayo - from the Arbos Trio (Naxos), is the perfect vehicle for this music born from the very Spanish tradition. A stunning performance from both musicians! This program was first released as a limited edition in 2002 for the artists professional use and re-recorded in 2003. This album presents world premiere recordings. Montreal violinist Alexandre Da Costa offers us his 4th album.
