Notes and Editorial Reviews

This recording brings together three sonatas for violin and piano that may seem to share little in common. What we discover, though, are certain intersections between the music and composers, which the Jade Duo has highlighted in their selection. The most obvious connection between Robert Schumann, Gabriel Fauré and Béla Bartók is their instrument—the piano. Though substantially different in style, their works are expertly written, with an intimate knowledge of the instrument’s versatility. Furthermore, each of these composers worked closely with violinists who played a role in shaping the violin writing, making the sonatas idiomatic examples for both instruments within their respective styles.

Since its
Read more establishment in New York City in 2012, the JADE DUO has been dedicated to interpreting piano and violin sonata repertoire with the highest artistic standard. The Jade Duo won first prize in the 2013 Artur Balsam Competition for Duos in New York and the second prize of the 2013 J.C. Arriaga Chamber Music Competition in Stamford, Connecticut.
