Friedemann Eichhorn (violin)
Fazil Say (piano)


Turkish pianist and composer Fazıl Say is joined by his long-standing friend, the violinist Friedemann Eichhorn, in an album of mid-19th-century German repertoire. Influenced by Liszt, Say’s ingenious transcriptions of the Prelude and Liebestod from Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde are heard here in world-premiere recordings. The composite F–A–E Sonata of Dietrich, Schumann and Brahms is seldom encountered as a whole, while Schumann’s Violin Sonata no.1, though written at a time of unhappiness, contains moments of glorious beauty and intimacy.

Friedemann Eichhorn and Fazıl Say recorded Say’s violin music together on Naxos 8574085. It was an ICMA nominated disc: ‘Say as an extraordinary pianist and Friedemann Eichhorn as a versatile violinist perform these works with unquestionable skill and, certainly sharpened by the composer’s participation, great musical expression and colours. The whole range of emotions is served from the slightest breath to the most vivacious outburst’ (Pizzicato).
