Notes & Reviews:

This recording aims to cast a spotlight on some of the remarkable, yet forgotten music written for the solo violin between 1840 and 1919. The long shadow of J.S. Bach's Sonatas and Partitas looms over some of the works contained on this disc, yet many are liberated from this influence, displaying resourcefulness and an array of moods that draw the listener into what can otherwise be the precariously narrow sound world of the solo violin. Many of the pieces have never been recorded before and some, particularly the Godard Sonata and Saint-Lubin Fantaisie, deserve to take their place beside Bach, Bartók and Ysaÿe as interesting additions to the central works in the solo violin repertoire.
