Notes & Reviews:

"As a kid, I was surrounded by classical, pop, rock, jazz, film and contemporary concert music - finding a balance of old and new music is still very important to me. Many of the works on First Loves are the ones that drew me in as a child - Rachmaninoff, Sarasate, and Wieniawski, arrangements by Heifetz, and Kreisler - and remain profoundly relevant today. I've also included my own arrangement of themes from Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake, which I made after my work on-camera and on the soundtrack of the film Black Swan. Each track is dedicated to someone who inspired me or made it possible for me to be the person and the artist that I am today. My hope is that First Loves will inspire others, young and old, to fall in love with the violin as I did." - Tim Fain
