Notes & Reviews:

Violinist Maria Milstein and pianist Hanna Shybayeva have been playing as a duo since 2013. This release, their debut CD together, features a number of works composed during times of war. The three Sonatas struck both Hanna and Maria with their powerful messages, which remain equally relevant today. For each of these composers, artistic creation provided an outlet for expression and communication in oppressive times. Their expressions of distress are very personal, ranging from direct, descriptive depictions of the atrocities of war to nostalgic recollections and alternative realities.
