Notes and Editorial Reviews

The cellist Valentino Worlitzsch delivers a fiery debut in his Genuin album on the Primavera-Edition, the series that so meritoriously presents the award-winners of the German Music Competition. Why the young musician won the first prize in the 2016 competition and was a favorite of the audience is revealed in these wonderful recordings. Together with the excellent pianist Elisabeth Brauss, Worlitzsch plays multifaceted and spirited musical works by Beethoven, Schumann, and Britten and presents himself as a soloist with the truly electrifying solo sonata by Eugene Ysaye. Hopefully, there will soon be more!
