As with Bach’s "Six Sonatas and Partitas,” Eugène Ysaÿe's six solo sonatas are a touchstone for every violinist. However, the young violinist Judith Ingolfsson negotiates the death-defying difficulties with the greatest of ease and with such charm that only the music itself speaks. And then the listener can lean back enjoy the full tonal range and compositional nuances of the fin de siècle works. A promising Genuin debut CD for lovers of unusual solo violin literature!

"It's not surprising that Icelandic-born violinist Judith Ingolfsson plays this music well: she studied at the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia with Jascha Brodsky, whose teacher was Ysaÿe himself."

"There’s another terrific CD of the Six Sonatas for Violin Solo by Eugène Ysaÿe, this time by the Icelandic-born violinist Judith Ingolfsson. I reviewed the Rachel Colly D’Alba set on Warner last February, and referred then to the startling originality and individuality of these remarkable works."
