NEW CD OUT : “BRAHMS: SONATAS FOR PIANO AND VIOLIN” ON APARTÉ (DECEMBER 2021)

On period instruments, this recording delivers an iconoclastic vision of these repertoire standards. The authentic sound palette and the complicity of Aylen Pritchin and Maxim Emelyanychev allow here the two Russian prodigies, animated by the same musical breath, to give a fair, sincere and deeply authentic interpretation.
