The Complete Works for Violine and Piano

A new listening experience is truly what the chamber duo Michael Schäfer (piano) and Ilona Then-Bergh (violin) has to offer Genuin listeners. After their first complete recording of chamber music for violin by Ottorino Respighi, the two acutely sensitive performing artists are drawn once again to the fin de siècle, where such delightful works as the sonatas by Sylvio Lazzari and Volkmar Andreae originated. These pieces would make an attractive addition to any violinist’s repertoire and are works that breathe the spirit of Proust and art nouveau, the symbolists and Wagner—simply irresistible!

„This is an attractive and inspired disc, well played and recorded.”

"She plays like an angel with the purest and sweetest tone imaginable, and with perfect intonation and insightful musical instincts. Her pianist partner, Michael Schäfer, displays equally expert playing and fine musicianship. Admittedly, these are works that inhabit the distant corners of the violin-piano repertoire, but they are well worth exploring on this beautifully recorded CD."
