About the album

Album is titled after the “Five Pieces for Violin and Piano” by Ukrainian composer Valentin Silvestrov which conclude the album. These works, written in 2004, receive their first international release here in a context combining the familiar and the far-flung, which finds creative affinities between the music of four very different composers.

Hindemith’s Sonata in E travels from pastoral beginnings to harmonic complexity, the Janáček Violin Sonata balances lyrical flow and expressive gestures, while Silvestrov - as ever - artfully addresses the ghosts and shadows of history in his gently-undulating music of memories.

Toru Takemitsu’s “Distance de fée” (from 1951) was amongst the first pieces written by the Japanese composer at a time when he was still influenced by Messiaen and Debussy.
