Notes and Editorial Reviews

From Bach to Korngold, The Exquisite Hour is exactly that: an exquisite hour of music. Famous pieces such as Elgar's Salut d'amour are paired with lesser-known works such as Korngold's Garden Scene, with a few vocal works transcribed for violin as well. The great Meditation from Thais by Massenet is sure to be a favorite. Violinist Adam LaMotte sings with gorgeous tone throughout, with a great painter's palette of colors. Supported by pianist Janet Coleman, who also arranged the title track, the duo is perfectly matched, creating a ambiance of romance, reflection, and inspiration.
