Notes and Editorial Reviews

The first joint recording of Estonian artists' siblings, Mari and Mihkela Poll presents a magnificent panorama of twentieth century violin music accompanied by a piano. Mari, the world-class violinist, performs George III Enescu's violin sonata - a reflection of the composer's multicultural experience, who grew up surrounded by Romanian and Slavic folklore, and played violin lessons from gypsy musicians.
