New Delos Digital Release
“He (Sasha Rozhdestvensky) belongs to the great line of outstanding artists. His approach and relationship to music and the violin is intense, highly sensitive and intelligent.” — violinist Ivry Gitlis
With this release, distinguished Russian violinist Sasha Rozhdestvensky and acclaimed Swiss pianist Josiane Marfurt offer the only available collection of P. I. Tchaikovsky’s music for violin and piano that can be considered truly “complete.”
The original score to the composer’s transcription of his early song for these instruments – Oh! Chante Encore, Op. 16, No. 4 – was long believed lost, until Rozhdestvensky discovered it recently at the National Library of France in Paris. This delightful and engaging work is offered here in its world premiere recording.
