Notes & Reviews:

Concertmaster of the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra, Natanel Draiblate is an accomplished and rising star in the violin world. On this recording he performs works by Mendelssohn, Prokofiev and Grieg with pianist Lura Johnson.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
Draiblate plays the Prokofieff Sonata for Two Violins with Luigi Mazzocchi, which is a treat to hear in the context of a violin and piano program. Draiblate and Johnson give an engaging reading of Elgar's 'Salut d'amour', where they seem to test the limits of rubato. They manage to ebb, flow, pull, and push to the furthest extreme without disturbing or distorting the line or exceeding the boundaries of good taste. They apply the same kind of freedom to the Grieg F-major Sonata, which makes it a very exciting and engaging reading. I look forward to hearing more recordings by these musicians.
