Last night we finished the recording of the new Saint-Saens album for Sonarti Records. It features the first Violin Sonata, the First Elegy for Violin and Piano, the Fantasy for Harp, the Fantasy for violin and harp, 3 mazurkas for piano, and the Etude en Forme de Valse for piano. It was recorded in UCLA’s brand new Ostin Music Center with its excellent acoustics. Along with my colleagues harpist Kyunghee-Kim Sutre, and violinist Guillaume Sutre. Stay tuned for release info!
I’m heading into the studio again to record a disc with works by Saint-Saens for Sonarti Records (some solo works as well as the 1st violin sonata with violinist Guillaume Sutre). Stay tuned for more info!
