Czech Violin Works / Pike
Catalog: CHAN 10827
Composed by: Janacek; Suk; Dvorak
Jennifer Pike is one of brightest young musicians around today, renowned for her intelligent musicianship and dazzling technique. Here she is joined by her established duo partner Tom Poster in music for violin and piano by three eminent Czech composers. Dvořák’s four Romantic Pieces are miniatures of beguiling simplicity and lyricism. Josef Suk’s Four Pieces develop from the serious and dark qualities of the first to the high spirits of the concluding ‘Burleska’. Janáček’s Violin Sonata is perhaps the first work that Janáček composed in his strikingly original mature style.
