- Axel Strauss (Violin)
Notes & Reviews:
The first German artist to win the international Naumburg Violin Award in New York, Axel Strauss was acclaimed for his recording of Mendelssohn's Songs Without Words (8570213) as ‘an excellent violinist who plays these with wit and verve'. On this disc he revels in the virtuosic and expressive opportunities offered by Pierre Rode's 24 Caprices, which preceded those of Paganini by several years. Rode's Violin Concertos Nos. 7, 10 and 13, performed by Friedemann Eichhorn, are also available in the 19th Century Violinist Composers series (8570469).
"Axel Strauss... especially convincing in demonstrating the varied bowings, and plays throughout with a sensitive awareness of the character of each piece and how best to make the form and phrase-structure clear and convincing. ... excellent performances that respect Rode's classical poise while bringing out an emotional colour that's already Romantic." -Gramophone MagazineNotes & Reviews:
