Violin And Piano
Samuel Dushkin Repertoire - The Best Pieces for Violin and Piano
Samuel Dushkin (1891-1976), advisor, duo partner and friend of Igor Stravinsky, wrote several transcriptions for his instrument, the violin, of then well-known and popular melodies from works by Stravinsky, of course, but also by other composers such as Bizet, Rachmaninov, Albéniz and Wieniawski.
The present collection is a compilation of arrangements by well-known and unknown composers: Exotically tinged melodies by Paul Kirman, R. Felber or Alexander Sasonoff are juxtaposed to a beguiling waltz by Max Reger, tone paintings in Mussorgskys Ripples, George Gershwins jazzy Short Story and many others. The collection is not complete without a movement from Stravinskys LOiseau de feu and a tango - spectacular music for the violin.
