Notes and Editorial Reviews

Caroline Adomeit has assembled a jewel of a musical declaration of love. Above all, to her instrument, the violin. For her, there are hardly any limits to what she can – or wants to – do with the violin, which is why this recording supplements Bach’s Partita with unusual pieces like Ysaye’s Mazurka or Monti’s Czardas. The Strad Magazine praised Caroline Adomeit in no uncertain terms: ‘An uneven programme does little to hide the obvious skills of a young fiddler.’ Caroline Adomeit has assembled a jewel of a musical declaration of love.
