Notes & Reviews:

Marie-Claudine Papadopoulos (b. 1987) began studying the violin at age five. From 2003-11 she studied with Prof. Ulf Hoelscher. She is presently studying with Prof. Roman Nodel at the Music Academy, Mannheim. At the 2012 violin competition "Tone and Explanation - Work Mediation in Music and Words" of the Cultural Circle of German Business and Industry, Ms. Papadopoulos won first prize, which forms the basis of the present CD, a program of duets with her brother, the pianist Dmitri Papadopoulos.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
Marie-Claudine and Dimitri Papadopoulos include the Five Pieces from Porgy and Bess (which is actually six songs from the opera) in a program of sonatas by Schubert and Ravel and a new piece for solo violin by Violeta Dinescu called 'Etude de Nuages'. The Dinescu was written for the 2012 "Ton und Erklärung" competition, and the production of this release was part of Marie-Claudine's prize.She and her husband have both won many prizes in international competitions. This is an excellent recording. I love the Gershwin and the way these musicians play Schubert and Ravel.
