Album Description Download Full CD Booklet

Grammy-nominated violinist Jennifer Koh and virtuoso pianist Shai Wosner play 20th-century works by three remarkable Central European composers who intertwine folkloric influences with their own unmistakable originality.

The album includes Leoš Janáček’s Moravian influenced Sonata for violin and piano, Béla Bartók’s impassioned Violin Sonata No. 1, and compelling miniatures by György Kurtág, including Tre Pezzi for violin and piano and selections from Signs, Games and Messages.

The Philadelphia Inquirer praised Koh’s “strikingly beautiful” playing in the Bartok sonata. Wosner brought a “diaphanous tone deeply sympathetic to the Debussy-like writing” to the Janáček.
