Notes and Editorial Reviews

First a word of praise for the recording, magnificently engineered by Adam Abeshouse. Not only are both instruments captured with tangible fidelity (it feels as though you could reach out and touch the artists), they are accorded such presence and weight that the illusion is created of them actually playing in your listening room. All of which would go for nothing, of course, if the performances weren't of such incredibly high calibre.

This programme demands interpretative and dynamic flexibility of exceptional sensitivity and Maria Bachmann proves more than equal to the task with a range of tonal shadings and exquisite bow-work that ensures the coruscating scores tingle with life and energy. She throws herself into the
Read more engaging rhythmic propulsions of Moravec's Ariel Fantasy and Double Action with a thrilling abandon that never compromises absolute technical command. Copland's wonderfully balmy Ukele Serenade is delivered with thrilling immediacy, and the Gershwin numbers are swung with infectious good humour. The central Blues of the Ravel Sonata is deliciously earthy, and Corigliano's Red Violin Chaconne sounds suitably ominous and ethereal by turns. Exemplary accompaniments from Jon Klibonoff round out a truly exceptional disc.
