This new release features Stravinsky's rarely-performed Violin Concerto, coupled with the main works of his repertoire for violin and piano. The composer was initially convinced that he lacked the experience necessary for writing a violin concerto and taking full advantage of the instrument's possibilities in concertante style. But in 1931 he went on to compose a Neoclassical masterwork in close collaboration with violinist Samuel Dushkin, a work that bears his unmistakable fingerprint. It is considered one of the 20th century's greatest violin concertos. He also made numerous arrangements for violin and piano, joining again with Dushkin to enrich the violin repertoire with his imaginative genius. Along with the multi-movement works, the Suite italienne and Divertimento, Liana Gordjia and Katia Skanavi present a selection of miniatures: the "Berceuse" from The Firebird, the "Danse russe" from Petrushka, the "Chanson russe" from the opera Mavra, and Tango, a piano piece arranged by Dushkin for violin and piano.
