Joseph Achron was a child prodigy as a violinist, and despite great success as a composer he considered himself a performer for most of his life. His most famous composition is the intense and dramatic Hebrew Melody, but the riches in this programme range from the deeply passionate early Prelude to the spirit of dance in Les Sylphides, the various moods of the Stimmungen and the theatrical Stempenyu, speculated to be the inspiration for Marc Chagallís famous painting of a fiddler on the roof.

Achronís remarkable music fell into obscurity, but its recent revival includes a recording of his First Violin Concerto available on Naxos 8559408.
