The far-reaching geographical origins of the repertoire – from New Zealand to the United States by way of Sudan, China, Russia, Poland, Croatia, Czech Republic, Israel and Mexico – reveal a fascinating variety of styles and cultural diversity in these seldom heard works. Two larger works set the framework of the album – Slavonic Sonata (1917) written by Croatian noblewoman Dora Pejačević and the Second Sonata for Violin and Piano (1927) by Czech composer Erwin Schulhoff. While sharing Eastern European flavour, the two sonatas, written only ten years apart, are worlds apart stylistically. These particularly dramatic works are complemented by a programme of shorter pieces with evocative titles that suggest little adventures and encounters on a traveller’s journey.

Press Quotes:

“Violin Odyssey—a striking collection which showcases Zorman’s incredible virtuosity and variety of sound… Zorman’s virtuosity dazzles as he flies through furiously fast passages, never once losing his commitment to the work’s emotional intensity.” (The Cusp)

“Zorman displays his customary strong, impassioned playing throughout an excellent disc.” (The Wholenote)

“Throughout this adventuresome journey, Itamar Zorman… plays with total command and subtle variety.” (The Arts Fuse)
