Ernest Bloch (1880‐1959) was trained as a violinist, taking lessons from the great Eugene Ysaye in Brussels. Under the threat of the Nazi regime he took refuge in the USA, where he stayed the rest of his life. Here he became famous, one of the first 'classical' composers to integrate Jewish elements in his music. His works on religious themes express the sorrows and joys of the Jewish people over the centuries.

This release presents works for violin and piano, including the substantial and romantic 1st violin sonata, the famous Baal Shem (scenes from Chassidic Life), and the 'Abodah' (Godís Worship), dedicated to Yehudi Menuhin.

They are played with deep expression and wonderfully warm tone by violinist Maristella Patuzzi, playing a magnificent Stradivari instrument.

Contains artist biographies and extensive liner notes written by the artists.
