Polychrome. A simple concept that defines the very essence of this recording, in which colour is omnipresent and takes on diverse and nuanced forms. The choice of works in itself forms at once a harmony and a contrast of shades and sonorities: this album offers the virtuosic and lyrical Violin Sonata no.2 in D major, op.94a, of Sergei Prokofiev, the Sonate posthume of Maurice Ravel, and the Violin Sonata in E flat major, op.18, of Richard Strauss, the pièce de résistance of the programme.

Tobias Feldmann, a prizewinner at the 2015 Queen Elisabeth International Competition, invites us on this musical journey with his vividly coloured and expressive violinistic language, supported with finesse by his partner Boris Kusnezow. Skilfully combining virtuosity and elegance, their expert fingers create an alchemy whose extreme precision enables these works to yield up all their poetry and refinement, revealing the specific colour of each of them.

Alpha Classics is proud to support the career development of these young yet already seasoned artists.
