Notes & Reviews:

Violinist Sergei Bezkorvany (1930-2010) held several lead orchestral and chamber posts during a career that took him from his native Canada to America and ultimately, to England. His 1972 solo, unaccompanied debut at Wigmore Hall elicited the following from the Daily Telegraph - "... his tone was richly sustained and his left-hand agility was outstanding." This Vol. 1 tribute to the violinist features four melodic, accessible 20th century chamber works written in late-Romantic, early-modern style.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
The playing is deeply emotional, the sound is rich, and the program is rare for the time (the 1970s). Don't expect to put this recording on as background music! It will grab your attention immediately, and will not let you go.
