Notes & Reviews:

Violinist Masha Lankovsky and pianist Byron Schenkman perform a program of late-Romantic and early modern Russian works for violin and piano. Violinist Masha Lankovsky enjoys a versatile career bridging the worlds of performing and teaching, collaborating with contemporary composers and reviving little-known treasures from the past. Pianist Byron Schenkman's playing has been described as "sparkling," "elegant," and "insightful" by no less an authority than the New York Times.

American Record Guide, July/August 2015
Masha Lankovsky's violin is silken and captivating. Byron Schenkman specializes in early music, which perhaps accounts for the no-nonsense clarity of his pianism, but he also has the sense of fantasy that the music requires. The recorded sound has a warmth and softness that also serve this repertory well.
