About

After his debut solo album with music by Bach, Bartók and Boulez, Michael Barenboim’s second album is also dedicated to works for solo violin and features compositions by Salvatore Sciarrino, Giuseppe Tartini, Luciano Berio, and Niccolň Paganini, sketching a short history of Italian solo violin literature.

The four works seem very heterogenous at first glance but what unites them is their rich technical and stylistic spectrum. The juxtaposition of traditional and contemporary music works creates an inimitable sound cosmos and makes the works by Tartini and Paganini sound incredibly modern alongside 20th-century music. Michael Barenboim creatively navigates the sometimes obsessive and diabolical elements of the works and creates an inspired and unique interpretation.

Reviews

In this ravishingly intense, second solo album, Michael Barenboim dares to face the abyss to explore not just technical but soinic and psychological extremes, linking repertoire from the 18th and 19th centuries with the recent avant-garde ... In short, this is visionary programming, breathtakingly realised.  Steph Power (Instrumental Choice)
