Notes & Reviews:

Estonian violinist Kerem (b. 1981) is both a performer and composer, with over 100 works to his credit, 3 symphonies among them. Kerem's style is powerful and direct, reminiscent of Prokofiev in its steely strength and motoric energy. This is one of a series of projected recordings of Estonian music on Toccata Classics.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
The music is traditional-but-modern, using both more-or-less tonal harmonies. Allegros are muscular, percussive, ostinato-driven adagios are long-lined, lyrical, and atmospheric. The 14-minute, four-movement 2003 Solo Violin Sonata is likewise brilliantly crafted and compelling, with a central 'Siciliana' of remarkable elegance and expressiveness.
