Notes & Reviews:

Maurice Ravel's rich and colorful works for violin and piano have become part of the core repertoire. They acknowledge the influences of a range of musical styles jazz to Impressionism and fuse the tonal colors of Debussy with the lyricism of Franck. This disc, featuring violinist Sasha Rozhdestvensky (son of the great conductor Gennady Rozhdestvensky) accompanied by pianist Josiane Marfurt, not only includes the complete works for violin and piano but also the Sonata for Violin and Cello with cellist Michal Kanka.

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
Sasha Rozhdestvensky is here a very accomplished young violinist with a solid technique and an attractive tone. (Mr Vroon hated his Tchaikovsky in Jan/Feb.) The best performances are Tzigane and the Posthumous Sonata. While I am impressed with his technique and musicianship, I can't say that any of the performances here are special or individual. I have heard superior performances of all of the works.
