Notes & Reviews:

This recording features Tedi Papavrami playing the solo violin Sonatas of Eugene Ysaÿe, an extraordinary violinist who in his time played a role comparable to that of Paganini in his. Ysaÿe dedicated each of these sonatas individually to a famous violin virtuoso of his time (Szigeti, Thibaud, Kreisler...). Maintaining an active career as a solo and chamber musician since the 1990's, Mr. Papavrami was appointed violin professor at the Haute École de Musique de Genève in 2008.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
Papavrami's set is accompanied by a bonus disc containing the Sonata for Two Violins that was written in London in April 1915, eight years before the six solo sonatas. It is not as stylistically advanced as they are and sounds more symbolist than impressionist. The solo sonatas have far more variety of tone color - right and left hand pizzicato, sul ponticello, harmonics, all sorts of bouncing bow techniques - and in this Ysaye wisely follows the lead of Paganini in his 24 Caprices. So much harmonizing also comes at the expense of counterpoint, which would have made them much more interesting. This is a fine work. Papavrami and Zvetlin Roussev have technique to burn and play with polish and musicianship. One of the best parts of this release is the interesting notes by Papavrami and Harry Halbreich.
