Notes & Reviews:

Violinist Benjamin Schmid's third Ondine release contains well-known piano pieces by Shostakovich and Prokofiev in fresh arrangements for violin and piano. Also included is a suite transcribed from Kurt Weill's 'The Threepenny Opera'. All three original works were written during the 1910s and 1920s. Known for his exceptionally wide repertoire and a great sense of musicality Benjamin Schmid has been described as "... one of the most valuable of today's golden-age-violinists." (The New York Sun) Pianist Lisa Smirnova has been collaborating with Mr. Schmid extensively for almost 20 years.
