Notes & Reviews:

Young French violinist Matthieu Arama learned his art with Igor Oistrakh and performs worldwide in important venues with leading orchestras and conductors. This CD is Arama's recording debut, showcasing his skills and musicality in a wide range of popular violin works: the fiendishly difficult Paganini's Moses Fantasy, the lyricism and charm of Wieniawski, the vigour and passion of Brahms's Hungarian Dances, the wit and humor of John Williams' Fiddler on the Roof, ending with the ever popular Zigeunerweisen by Sarasate. Arama plays a magnificent 1713 Stradivari.
