Among the world's outstanding violinists, Aaron Rosand has captivated audiences and critics throughout the world with his "immaculate technical achievement, beautiful multi-coloured tonal lustre, artful phrasing, stylistic elan and probing musical intellect" (Strad). A true violinist's violinist, Rosand carries on two traditions of playing, directly descending from renowned pupils of Eugene Ysa? and Leopold Auer. He studied with both Leon Sametini at the Chicago Musical College, and with Efrem Zimbalist, Sr. at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia. The violin music of Brahms is perfectly suited to these two schools and this 2 disc set has the added bonus of an original work by Joseph Joachim, the arranger of the Hungarian Dances and long term collaborator of Brahms. The exquisite violin playing is more than ably complemented by the wonderful pianist Hugh Sung.
