Notes & Reviews:

Johan Halvorsen was one of the leading figures in Norwegian music during his lifetime. His folk-inspired Concert Caprice on Norwegian Melodies evokes the natural world while his Passacaglia and Sarabande echo the sophisticated world of the Baroque. Virtuoso violinist Antonio Bruni thrived in Paris despite the French Revolution, and his Duos Concertants are underrated gems of the repertoire. Husband and wife duo, violinist Natalia Lomeiko, described by Yehudi Menuhin as 'one of the most brilliant of our younger violinists', and violist Yuri Zhislin, hailed by The Strad as 'a virtuoso with a lyrical talent and a truly Romantic temperament', have been acclaimed for their technically flawless performances. After completing her studies at the Royal College and the Royal Academy of Music, Natalia Lomeiko won several prestigious international competitions, including first prize in the Premio Paganini in Italy and Michael Hill in New Zealand. Yuri Zhislin became the BBC Radio Two Young Musician of the Year in 1993 and has performed throughout Europe, America, Japan, Australia and New Zealand.

Ritmo
Halvorsen was one of the most important figures in the Norwegian music scene throughout his life. The Concert Caprice for Two Violins on folk-inspired melodies evokes a natural world, full of life and freshness. With advanced technical resources, harmonics, arpeggiated chords, pizzicattos left hand, chords etc.. Halvorsen has a very definite melodic line and harmonies transparent, in a perfect tonal frame.
