Notes & Reviews:

Delos recording artist Piet Koornhof, one of South Africa's most acclaimed violinists, heard in partnership with distinguished pianist Truida van der Walt, has assembled a program of mostly 20th c. works that focus more on his instrument's lyrical, "singing" qualities than its virtuosic possibilities. Remembrances, derived from John Williams' suite from his Schindler's List film score, conveys deep sentiment and searing nostalgia. The remaining short selections testify to his instrument's supreme ability to express haunting musical beauty and profound emotion.
