Notes & Reviews:

Grammy-nominated violinist Jennifer Koh and virtuoso pianist Shai Wosner play 20th century works by three remarkable Central European composers who intertwine folkloric influences with their own unmistakable originality. The album includes Leos Janacek's Moravian influenced Sonata for violin and piano, Bela Bartok's impassioned Violin Sonata No. 1, and compelling miniatures by Gyorgy Kurtag, including Tre Pezzi for violin and piano and selections from Signs, Games and Messages.
