Notes & Reviews:

On this budget priced reissue, violinist Graf Mourja and pianist Natalia Gous perform a recital of music that run the full gamut of expression found in the repertoire for violin. Virtuoso or primitive, aristocratic or proletarian, even crossing over into the world of jazz, nothing is foreign to the instrument's protean nature.

Catherine Nelson, The Strad
Ukrainian violinist Graf Mourja follows up his fine disc of Stravinsky and Szymanowski for Harmonia Mundi with a foray into more eclectic territory. This selection brings together the wild and the exotic, from Paganini's La Campanella to Sarate's Concert Fantasy on Carmen. Mourja has selected the works with such care, and he and Gous perform them with such emotional commitment and attention to the finest musical detail, that they never fail to charm and captivate.
