This two-CD set offers all the works that Prokofiev wrote for the violin as solo instrument. One of the most sought-after and acclaimed violinists today, James Ehnes is accompanied by the BBC Philharmonic and Gianandrea Noseda in the two concertos, and, in several chamber works, by the pianist Andrew Armstrong with whom he has previously made a number of highly acclaimed Chandos recordings. The distinguished Amy Schwartz Moretti joins James Ehnes in the Sonata for Two Violins. The First Violin Concerto, completed in 1917, is a work with much charm and gentle tunefulness. It was written during a comparatively lyrical period in Prokofiev’s compositional life, though it is not without passages of bravura, especially in the brilliant central scherzo. The Second Concerto was premiered in 1935 and in feeling and atmosphere inhabits the world of Romeo and Juliet. All Prokofiev’s chamber works featuring solo violin are also present on this release. Both the violin sonatas were written in close association with the violinist David Oistrakh but they are highly contrasted, the clean and simple beauty of the Second standing in stark opposition to the emotional depth of the First. Also included are the Sonata for Solo Violin and the Five Melodies.
