The second release on Challenge Classics by the unique duo of accordionist Marieke Hopman and violinist Cecile Huijnen, this time featuring soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek. The album gives us new, daring and exciting arrangements of famous and lesser-known classical works and jazz standards.

‘Love!’ is all about love from the 17th century to the 21st, via Russia, the Czech Republic, the Netherlands and Germany, to England and the United States, encompassing passionate love, motherly love, forbidden love and love lost. ‘Love!’ is also about us, about our love for music and the unique combination formed by the instruments utilised on the album. The orchestral possibilities and the specifically melancholy tone colour of the accordion form a magnificent blend with the scintillating and sonorous sound of the violin.

‘Love!’ presents new ideas on repertoire pieces, technical virtuosity and a wide range of atmosphere and emotions.
