Notes & Reviews:

Pierre Rode's music represents the full flowering of the French violin school founded by his mentor Giovanni Battista Viotti. The virtuosic 12 Etudes heard here run the gamut from graceful to vigorously dramatic, testing the artistry and technique of the solo violinist to the utmost. Award-winning Nicolas Koeckert is joined on this recording by his father, the internationally-renowned Rudolf Koeckert.

"They are here played by the young Nicolas Koeckert, the first German laureate in the Moscow International Tchaikovsky Violin Competition, and the third generation of violinists of the Koeckert family. Just go to the second and third track to enjoy performances that are, by any standard, an audacious display of an awesome technique." -David's Review Corner

American Record Guide
... Nicolas Koeckert plays stylishly and with verve and shows that he is a real virtuoso. The program is filled out with three duos that he plays with his father Rudolf... The Koeckerts play very well together, as you would expect.

Fanfare
The Koeckerts, alternating figuration and cantabile, explore its greater range sympathetically, enter into the more brooding, almost transitional, slow section that begins the second movement with a sense of foreboding, and plunge into the pert theme of the variations that bring such a genial variety.
