Notes & Reviews:

Acclaimed Uzbek violinist Dr. Tigran Shiganyan performs a collection of music for violin by Alfred Schnittke, one the most important composers of the 20th Century. This CD includes works for solo violin (À Paganini), two works for violin and piano (Sonata No. 1 and Stille Hacht), Stille Music for violin and cello, and two works for two violins - Moz-Art and Praeludium: In Memoriam Dmitri Shostakovich. For this project Dr. Shiganyan is joined by other young talented Uzbek musicians: pianist Iskander Zakirov, cellist Ildar Khuziakhmetov, and violinists Ordabek Duissen and Vladimir Dyo. Produced and engineered by Sergei Kvitko and recorded at Blue Griffin's Studio the Ballroom.

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
The Schnittke piece I like best here is the sonata that he wrote in 1963 for Mark Lubotsky. It's Russian to the core, with a huge range of colors, from the darkest Prokofieff to the lightest Shostakovich. The movements are short, yet they are very substantial. The piano playing is very impressive here, and Shiganyan's violin playing is impressive everywhere. It is no easy task to play this music, and it is a pleasure to hear it played so well.
