Notes & Reviews:

At the edges of the world With their new GENUIN CD, the Duo TschoppBovino is presenting something you don't come across every day - two musicians on three instruments! Miriam Tschopp features successively as both violinist and violist in Dmitri Shostakovich's two late sonatas. Maybe this is why she and her piano partner Riccardo Bovino play with such incredible unity? The spectral sounds of the slow movements and relentless marcatos of the fast movements are guaranteed to give us goose bumps. Listening to them, it is no wonder that Shostakovich occupies a totally unique position in 20th century music - at the edges of the speakable and tangible, at the edges of the world of sound...
