Notes & Reviews:

Herwig Zack's thoughtfully programmed recordings for solo violin have earned him plaudits around the world. In his latest for AVIE, Made in Germany, he turns to his fellow countrymen in repertoire that ranges from the Baroque to the present day. Any overview of German violin music must include J.S. Bach, as Zack's previous two releases did, and also turn-of-the- 20th-century titan Max Reger, who clearly based his solo violin output on that of his 17th-century predecessor. Zack includes a world premiere recording of a work dedicated to him by Klaus Heinrich Stahmer, but the crowning achievement of this recording is the Complete Works for Solo Violin by Hindemith, commemorating the 50th anniversary of the composer's death.

The Strad
An absorbing celebration of the solo violin... very special.

International Record Review, February 2014
His weighty tone strikes at the emotional heart of this music but that doesn't preclude bite.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
Herwig Zack, who studied with Josef Gingold at Indiana University, served as the concertmaster of the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra. He enjoys an impressive career as a soloist, and now teaches at his alma mater. He is a marvelous violinist who understands this music intimately and loves it deeply; even the strange fragments and the Finale of Op. 11:6, a perpetual-motion movement.
