Notes & Reviews:

For their first GENUIN recording, violinist Sarita Kwok and pianist Wei-Yi Yang present music from a period when Jancek and Ravel were still invoking the "world of yesterday," while Stravinsky and Prokofiev were celebrating the "here and now." A balancing act that both young musicians pull off splendidly, connecting long musical lines and palpably enjoying relentless rhythmic repetitions. They provide for moments of stillness as well as veritable fireworks. So it comes as no surprise that both musicians have drawn international acclaim - competition juries and the press have not stopped singing their praises! We experience this firsthand the moment the lights go out and the musicians intone the first notes of Ravel's seductive blues...
