Notes & Reviews:

Violinist Orsolya Korcsolan brings versatile artistry to this album that features European bred Jewish composers. Some of these composers lived in Europe throughout their lives, suffering persecution under the Nazis, while others fled to safer territory in the United States.

"Pieces, all quite good, some very folk-like. Orsolya Korcsolan is an excellent violinist who is based in Vienna and studied under Dorothy Delay and Itzhak Perlman, and these performances are very polished."- American Record Guide
