Variation Playlist for 25th March – Isabelle Faust and Alexander Melnikov

Written by on March 25, 2012

 My theme for this week is the work of two contemporary classical musician, the French violinist  Isabelle Faust and the Russian pianist Alexender Melnikov.  Faust and Melnikov record for the same label, Harmonia Mundi and both of them have very recently released new and excellent CD’s which you will get to hear pieces from,  but the reason that I’m creating a show based on these two musicians is that they also perform and record together very frequently in chamber music pieces.  So during the show you are going to hear them playing individually, in concerto works with orchestra and in chamber works with each other.
