“In this virtuoso program ‘On Fire’, Piet Koornhof’s playing is full of imagination and extraordinary dynamics of accentuation and colour.” —Remy Franck, Pizzicato
On Fire: The Virtuoso Violin
Piet Koornhof, violin
Bernarda Vorster, piano
In this 2-CD set, Piet tackles some of the most brilliant and technically challenging repertoire for violin ever written. We hear glittering masterpieces by fabled masters of the instrument: Henryk Wienawski, Fritz Kreisler, and Eugene Ÿsaye. On the more rarely performed side, we get highly worthwhile violin treasures by, among others, Glazunov, Kroll, Taneyev, Rota, and Karayev – as well as a particularly fascinating cycle by Eduard Toldrà.
