About

Leopold Godowsky was one of the greatest piano virtuosos of his time, many of whose compositions for the piano have long since taken their place in the repertoire. However, his violin music is almost unknown.

Avowal is a charming transcription of his piano work Poem No.2. The Twelve Impressions were dedicated to Fritz Kreisler and his wife, and are largely derived from Godowsky’s original piano pieces but refashioned to allow for Kreisler’s fingerings and bowing.

Nazrin Rashidova is a soloist, recitalist, chamber musician and orchestral director, whose musical acumen is ensuring a unique place for her in the music world. Roderick Chadwick has been hailed by The Sunday Times as a “possessor of devastating musicality and technique”.
