The artists performing on this new recording of Violin Sonatas by Ysaye, Gubaildulina, Prokofiev and Ruben de Gheselle say of each other: "George Tyriard never ceases to surprise me with the extent of his enquiring mind and ability to question and observe his environment. Not only as a pianist, but also as a devoted student of mathematics, language and philosophy, George takes an analytical approach, which, in music, he combines with a remarkable degree of sensitivity and sense of natural flow. The combination of his virtuosity on the one hand, and his ability to touch the heart on the other has brought him success and recognition in Belgian piano competitions such as the Steinway, Cantabile and Stephan De Jonghe competition." George says: "The first time I heard Veronique play was in a masterclass in Antwerp in 2009. She captivated the entire room with her lovely smile and an awe-inspiring rendition of Beethoven's romance in F major. But it was not until 5 years later that we finally played music together. Veronique's richness of tone and instinctively beautiful phrasing allowed me to find new ways of integrating what I was trying to achieve in my playing with her indominable spirit and joy for life."
