Notes & Reviews:

Expedition Audio Recommended
This music is alluring and colorful, strangely romantic, often melancholy and, well, rather difficult to describe... Ms. Rashidova and Mr. Chadwick capture the charisma and charm of the music in performances that are technically secure, musically beguiling and stylistically, seem to be right in the idiom of each of Godowsky's creations. In all, this is a delightful hour of extraordinary and exotic music.... read more ...

Leopold Godowsky was one of the greatest piano virtuosos of his time, many of whose compositions for the piano have long since taken their place in the repertoire. However, his violin music is almost unknown. Avowal is a charming transcription of his piano work Poem No. 2. The Twelve Impressions were dedicated to Fritz Kreisler and his wife, and are largely derived from Godowsky's original piano pieces but refashioned to allow for Kreisler's fingerings and bowing.

American Record Guide, November/December 2013
Godowsky's music is light and enjoyable, and his moods are often contemplative. zerbaijani violinist Nazrin Rashidova and Roderick Chadwick capture the moods ofthese pieces perfectly and are technically very adroit. Rashidova plays the "Crespi" Stradivarius of 1699.
