Performers Composers

Notes & Reviews:

A fabulous disc of contemporary composers performed by exciting young Lithuanian violinist Diana Galvydyte. This release includes highly virtuosic and very soulful works, with two works referencing the popular Lithuanian folk tale "Egle the Serpent Queen" and the world premiere recording of the poem 'Egle' by Joe Schittino.

American Record Guide, January/February 2013
The duo has the ability to perform convincingly a wide range of styles, as evidenced by their graceful delivery of Sher's piece. The scherzo by the same composer does give Galvydyte an opportunity to show off her virtuosity.
