Notes & Reviews:

Lydia Mordkovitch, a passionate performer and long time Chandos artist, here partnered by the pianist Ian Fountain, presents a programme of works by two Eastern European composers, the Polish Grazyna Bacewicz and Romanian George Enescu. Both composers studied in Paris and were professional violinists and pianists. Mordkovitch recently recorded Bliss' Violin Concerto on Chandos and received glowing reviews. 'Gramophone' magazine commented, "Mordkovitch responds with unflagging conviction and her customary no-holds-barred passion receives alert, warm-hearted support."

BBC Music Magazine
Herself a successful violinist, Bacewicz's violin works are idiomatic and stunningly effective. Lydia Mordkovitch produces ringingly authoritative interpretations: the music favours her rich, dark timbres and her capacity. The underrated Second Sonata of Enescu makes a perfectly-judged complement. Splendid performances of splendid music that deserves to be better.

Gramophone Magazine
Exhilarating works from two of eastern Europe's finest violinist-composers. Mordkovitch is in fine form throughout, ably accompanied by Ian Fountain, and the sound is excellent.
