Description
Distinctly Russian, unabashedly Romantic, yet highly disciplined, Nikolay Medtner's compositions for violin and piano encompass music of rare beauty and power, gratifying for both performer and audience. Violin Sonata No. 1, one of his best-known works, was inspired by the myth of Dionysus, god of wine and intoxication. Known as the "Spring Sonata," Medtner's epic Violin Sonata No. 2 is a work of exile, with distinct memories of springtime in Russia in its late Romantic textures.

"Composed in 1910–11, [Sonata 1] is a work full of youthful exuberance and believably reflects the condition of inspired intoxication that the artist experiences in the act of creation…. Canzonas with Dances … are lovely mood pieces, and I find myself swept away by them. Sonata 2 … is modeled partly after Beethoven's Kreutzer Sonata, with a majestic slow introduction to the first movement and a theme and variations middle movement…. The variations are masterly…. I'm left wondering why it has taken so long for Medtner to achieve the recognition he deserves…. [Laurence] Kayaleh is quite a virtuoso, and very musical. I would love to hear more from this duo. Very fine booklet notes again by Paul Stewart."—American Record Guide
