Description

In “Waltz & More”, for two violins, Chopin, Brahms, Tchaikowsky and, of course, Strauss get the unique Igudesman treatment, together with a good selection of Alexsey’s own compositions. This is, quite simply, music for letting your hair down!

Are you looking for an encore or some relaxation after struggling with Bartók’s 44 Duos? Look no further! Nothing is sacred. You will find instructions to cry in the melancholy section of Chopin, to look in a scary way at the audience in “Scary Waltz” or to imitate a stuck record player in “Waltz of the Flowers”. Now why didn’t Tchaikowsky think of that? Ideal for intermediate to advanced players; a selection that should always be kept handy for having fun. Put in on your shelf next to “Mozart & More” (UE33656) and “Miles & More” (UE33655).

Reviews

(...) Je weiter man sich vorarbeitet, desto näher kommt man dem typischen Igudesman-„Augenzwinkern“: Scary Waltz macht seinem Namen alle Ehre. Und da Igudesman aus Chopins Minutenwalzer einen „Zwei Minuten-Walzer“ macht, muss er „An der schönen blauen Donau“ in einer Minute abhandeln: Shortest version ever!

(...) Auch von uns eine wärmste Empfehlung für unterhaltsamen und niveauvollen Gruppenunterricht!
