Description: An hour and forty minutes of virtuosic violin music offers a few old-fashioned warhorses but also quite a bit of rare repertoire from Lithuania, Ukraine, Azerbaijan, the U.S.A. and Catalonia. Good notes for each piece too - did you know that violinists commonly refer to Wieniawski’s Scherzo Tarantelle as “Scary Tarantula”? 2 CDs for the price of 1. Piet Koornhof (violin), Bernarda Vorster (piano).
