Description

Mathieu van Bellen and Maria Milstein have chosen an unusual format for their album - two violins without accompaniment playing rarely performed works by Prokofiev, Ysaye and Gorecki.

'When choosing a program for this CD, we were adamant to present works which, rather than using virtuosic violin display as a means to an end, are masterworks in their own right, where the virtuosity of writing is a simple tool used to create breathtaking landscapes and thrilling stories. Three different countries and three different universes, though all three composed within less than half a century - the Sonatas for Two Violins by Serguei Prokofiev, Henryk Gorecki and Eugene Ysaye show with their incredible variety how exciting a violin duo can be.' - Mathieu van Bellen and Maria Milstein
