About the album

As a child Stefan Wolpe studied the violin and the piano, and by his teens he wished to become a concert pianist and composer. His life transformed when, at the age of 18, he visited the Bauhaus at Weimar and sat in on the Preliminary Course of the painter and progressive educator Johannes Itten. Throughout his life Wolpe maintained that art has the power to transform the individual and society. This remarkable collection of Wolpe's music for violin(s) and piano includes several premiere recordings (the spectacular op. 2 Duo for two violins, the two studies of 1933, and the fragment of a second violin sonata). In addition it includes Wolpe's two late violin solos, and his magnificent and epic 1949 Sonata for Violin and Piano. The featured violinist on all the works is the Armenian/American virtuoso, Movses Pogossian.
Stefan Wolpes künstlerisches Schaffen wurde durch einen Besuch des Bauhaus in Weimar im Alter von 18 stark geprägt. Diese Zusammenstellung seiner Kompositionen für Violine und Klavier enthält einige Weltersteinspielungen.

His recent and upcoming performances include recitals in New York, Boston, Ann Arbor, and concerts in Korea, Japan, Germany, Armenia, and Cyprus. He is a Prizewinner of the 1986...
