Lydia Mordkovitch performs a personal selection of violin and viola works, chosen for their idiom which combines brilliant violin technique and strong expressivity and the theme of Russia. This is the first time Lydia has recorded a viola performance for Chandos.  

Amongst the collected works is the premiere recording of Volkonsky’s Sonata for Viola and Piano and the only available recordings of Khandoshkin’s Sonata for Solo Violin and Prokofiev’s Five Pieces from Cinderella.  This programme will appeal to collectors looking for rarer Russian composers, along with repertoire for which Lydia is recognised.  

Ms Mordkovitch performs on a Stradivari, Cremona 1699 “Kustendyke” and Landolfi, Milan 1760 Viola.  She is accompanied by Nicholas Walker who here makes his debut on Chandos, and by Marina Gusak-Grin in the Stravinsky.
