The brilliant violin hits of Sibelius, Ysaye, Sarasate, Balassa, Kurtág, Korchmar are selected from the best of the genre. A colorful, pan-European compilation, a selection of works by Scandinavian, Francophone, and Mediterranean authors that are not the usual, well-known evergreens, but less frequently played, but wonderful works.

Fun, snappy dances by Sibelius, the national composer of Finland, followed by a smaller suite by Ysaye. Márta Ábrahám plays the voice-dancing whistles and trills of Sarasate’s “Csalogány” with effortless virtuosity. The works of György Balassa and Kurtág are the gems of contemporary Hungarian music, and finally, the Korchmar Tango Macabre is a diabolical dance, the gloomy sounds of the violin spice up the tight rhythms and dark melodies with soft emotions.
