Notes and Editorial Reviews

This new release from ArcoDiva features pieces for viola and violoncello, most of which are dedicated to the performers featured here, Kristina Fialova and Petr Nouzovsky. Kristina Fialova has been primarily praised by critics for her impeccable technique, impassioned performance and sophisticated musical sentiment. After winning the 2013 Michal Spisak International Competition in Katowice, Poland, she was invited to the major concert stages in Europe. Her appearance at the prestigious Tivoli Festival in Denmark was followed by her debuting at the Tonhalle Zurich and giving a recital at the 2015 Prague Spring festival. “The tender beauty of the viola sound, resourceful agogics and inexhaustible variations in both dynamics and tempo gave Read more [the music] a whole new dimension, most attractive to the ear…” (Hudebni Rozhledy) Czech cellist Petr Nouzovsky has gone from strength to strength, having embarked upon an impressive career while still a student. As the winner of New Master on Tour (2007), the Europaische Forderpreis fur Musik (2007) and as laureate of the Val Tidone Competition (2011), he made his name on the international scene. He regularly performs with leading Czech and foreign orchestras, and is a highly sought-after chamber musician. Read less
