Preludes (24) for violin and piano, op.46


Christine Bernsted (violin)
Ramez Mhaanna (piano)


A renaissance artist for our times, Lera Auerbach is internationally renowned as a composer whose exquisitely crafted, emotional, and boldly imaginative music reaches a global audiences. Her 24 Preludes for Violin and Piano is a cycle of compact but ‘meaningful and complete’ works that follows the key scheme of Chopin’s 24 Préludes, while exploring stark contrasts that range from primordial darkness to naïve innocence. Using a highly original tonal language with clear references to classical traditions, this pioneering work fully represents Auerbach’s ability to put music at the service of a broader expression of human need and fallibility.

Lera Auerbach is a contemporary musical phenomenon whose unstoppable career started with a highly successful opera written at the age of 12. Her work has been widely performed and recorded on labels such as ECM, Alpha, Hänssler and many more, and there can be few collectors of new music who are unaware of her name and eager to acquire fine new recordings of recent work such as this one.

The young Danish duo of Christine Bergsted and Ramez Mhaanna have been working together since 2019, establishing a reputation for fiery energy and the ability to find Apollonian beauty and emotionally expressive passion in their performances. With numerous awards between them as individual musicians, this duo has already been recognised with prizes such as the Rødovre Music Prize for their work as performers and communicators of music via the podcast medium.
