In this debut album featuring original arrangements for violin and classical guitar, the duo breathes new life into the dark, mysterious and passionate chamber music of the 19th and early 20th centuries. Composers include Chopin, Mendelssohn, Faure, Ponce, Kreisler, Margola and Satie.
“To my mind the playing on this album is as good as it gets – articulate, well-phrased, passionate and soulful. We hear the dynamic and explosive contrasted with tender moments of lyricism. Truly a landmark recording for the violin and guitar duo combination. It is a recording lovers of classical music will want to revisit for years to come – I know I will.” – Philip Rosheger, master guitarist and composer
“The Lyrical Strings Duo is a unique ensemble with elegance, a passionate sound, and extraordinary programs.” – Tatiana Kolchanova, former first violinist for the Glinka State String Quartet and teacher at the Moscow Conservatory
