Notes & Reviews:

On 'Homelands', violinist Rudens Turku brings together composers who each created unique musical evocations of their native countries. All were world travelers who, through their compositions, found the means to produce a striking homage to their respective lands, from iconic sonatas by Dvorak and Rachmaninov's exquisite Vocalise (in the edition by Josef Gingold) to lesser-known works by a young Piazzolla and the Spanish virtuoso Sarasate.

Gramophone Magazine
Turku and his stylish partner Oliver Schnyder displays a fiery zeal, seriousness of purpose and clear-headed intelligence eminently well suited to the darkest and most broodingly passionate of Grieg's three sonatas...
