Notes & Reviews:

Internationally known violinist Zina Schiff includes a world premiere recording of Eric Zeisl's Violin Sonata on this recording.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
The release begins with Zeisl's arrangement for violin and piano of 'Menuchim's Song', an aria from Job, his unfinished opera; and it ends with Robert Daubner's Serenata, a piece he wrote in 1942 when he was just 20 years old. Three years later Daubner was killed in Dachau. I have loved every recording I have heard by Schiff and Grant, but this one is particularly special because it introduced me to the music of Zeisl and solves the riddle of how to play the Copland.
