Brahms: Complete Works For Violin And Piano
Format: COMPACT DISC
Schickedanz, Christoph; Iinuma, Chiharu
This album features the three great Brahms Sonatas for Violin and Piano, and the Scherzo from F-A-E Sonata for Violin and Piano in C Minor, WoO 2. This is the complete Brahms output for Violin and Piano. Christoph Schickedanz, born in Darmstadt in 1969, received attention as of the most recognized violinists of his generation in Germany. Honors at various competitions in Europe and the US prepared his way to a multi-facetted concert career. He has been concertizing in all over Europe, Northern America and Asia. Beyond the standard repertoire of solo and chamber music, Mr. Schickedanz has especially dedicated himself to the performance of unjustifiably neglected or forgotten composers. He can refer to numerous first recordings and was also involved in the publication of various first editions. His discography with more than 20 albums shows a wide range from the solo to the octet repertoire and has repeatedly attracted special notice by both the audience and the critics. Japanese pianist Chiharu Iinuma has been increasingly in high demand as a teacher, coach and ensemble pianist. A founding member of the Ridge Trio, the Chamber Ensemble Bloomington and the Duo Gillham-Iinuma, for many years she was the studio pianist for Joseph Gingold, Janos Starker, Franco Gulli, Neli Shkolnikova, Tsuyoshi Tsutsumi, Miriam Fried, Yuval Yaron, James Campbell and IU String Academy at Indiana University's Jacobs School.
