Notes and Editorial Reviews

Robert Kahn was a German pianist, teacher and composer, who wrote a prolific amount of music for chamber ensemble. This release explores his output for violin and piano. Kahn’s style is lyrical and intimate, and resembles the styles of Mendelssohn, Schumann, and Brahms. Finnish violinist Elina Vahala made her concert debut at age 12 with the Lahti Symphony. She was nominated as “Yong Master Soloist” for the 93/94 season with that same orchestra. She is also a founding member of Violin Academy, which is a master class based project for talented young Finnish violinists.
