Notes & Reviews:

The works on this disc offer a broad survey of American violin music. John Corigliano's 'Chaconne' is a set of variations based on his music for the 1998 film 'The Red Violin', while George Enescu's 'Romanian Rhapsody No. 1' is a nineteenth-century fantasia on a traditional melody, here in an arrangement by the Hollywood film composer Franz Waxman. Waxman's own 'Tristan and Isolde Fantasia' includes a demanding obbligato piano part, and originally formed an emotional climax to the 1946 film 'Humoresque'. The disc closes with John Adams's hugely popular Violin Concerto, a virtuosic masterpiece in which the soloist almost never stops playing.
