Notes and Editorial Reviews

Russian-American violinist Yevgeny Kutik, known for his "dark-hued tone and razor-sharp technique" (The New York Times), was inspired to create Words Fail following musings on Hans Christian Andersen’s well-known adage, "Where words fail, music speaks," best encapsulated by Mendelssohn’s iconic Songs Without Words. In this album, Kutik uses Mendelssohn's songs as a starting point to expand upon the idea that music surpasses traditional language in its expressive capabilities.
