Notes & Reviews:

Stravinsky's music for violin and piano was written for his duo with violinist Samuel Dushkin. Both the Suite italienne and Divertimento are arrangements of ballet scores, each work in turn an alchemic transformation of Baroque and Romantic styles into Stravinsky's distinctive idiom. The enigmatic but unwaveringly expressive Duo Concertant was Stravinsky's only original work in this form. Huebl and Wait were acclaimed for their recording of Schnittke's complete Sonatas (8.570978). Mark Wait received two Grammy nominations for his disc of Elliott Carter's Piano Concerto (8.559151). Violinist Carolyn Huebl is in demand as a soloist, chamber musician, and orchestral leader, and has performed throughout the United States, as well as in Argentina and Canada, winning critical acclaim. Pianist Mark Wait is Dean and Professor at the Blair School of Music at Vanderbilt University. His recording of Elliott Carter's Piano Concerto (Naxos 8.559151) was nominated for a 2004 Grammy award for Best Classical Album and Best Instrumental Solo Performance with Orchestra.

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
These musicians play exquisitely. Carol Huebl, the concertmaster of the IRIS Chamber Orchestra, teaches at Vanderbilt University and plays in the Blakemore Trio; and Mark Wait is the dean of the music school at Vanderbilt and has won all sorts of awards for his recordings. Everything is clean, clear, and brilliant, as recordings of Stravinsky's music should be.
