Notes & Reviews:

Featuring works by lesser known composers such as Henryk Wieniawski, Alexander Glazunov, and Fritz Kreisler alongside powerhouses like Dmitri Kabalevsky, the aim of this recording is to bring new light to pieces that may be unfamiliar to most. Piet Koornhoof is originally from South Africa, and he has traveled across Europe, North America, Asia, and Australia performing with astounding dexterity and artistic interpretation. Bernarda Vorster, also from South Africa, studied piano with Adolph Hallis, Walter Panhofer, and Joseph Stanford. She regularly performs with ensembles in South Africa as well as in Switzerland and Italy.
